WILMINGTON, MA - AMETEK Aerospace & Defense has been awarded a contract to provide a supplemental vapor cycle system to Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Development Programs Unit in Palmdale, CA.

The system being developed by the Thermal Management Systems business unit of AMETEK Aerospace & Defense in El Cajon, CA, will provide cooling for an externally mounted electronic instruments pod/s.
