Refrigeration solutions for Military and Commercial Applications

Our task was to manufacture and deliver 6 sets of 03 DASS Fill and Drain rigs for the BAE Systems export market, Qatar.

Lightfoot successfully bid for the contract to design and build a multi-room refrigeration plant for the Brazilian Navy flag ship aircraft carrier SAO PAOLO.

Lightfoot were contracted to supply a multi-room refrigeration system that included significant redundancy.

As part of our commitment to the Royal Navy for continued through life support of their installed equipment, Lightfoot was tasked with carrying out a detailed review of the air-conditioning and associated systems as the equipment OEM.

The UK Ministry of Defence required a new machine to replace an interim solution that had been in service for 15 years which was no longer fit for purpose. The design requirements of the machine meant it had to be capable of recovering, replenishing, vacuum dehydrating, and pressure testing the DASS system on their Typhoon aircraft.

Lightfoot Defence was required to modify the Apache Environmental Control System (ECS) Carts in order to make them compliant with current FGAS legislation.

Airbus Defence & Space (AD&S) GMBH required a series of tools and bespoke engineering jigs to be able to check the integrity of their Wing Tip Pod refrigeration pipework system.
