Mainstream Engineering Awarded Contract from the U.S. Air Force for Developing a Microscale Cooling System for Satellite Integrated Circuits

ROCKLEDGE, FL – March 18, 2011 – Mainstream Engineering Corporation, a 25-year-old Brevard County manufacturer with a history of leading-edge research and development that has resulted in advanced, lean-manufacturing, cost-competitive products, which are all made in the USA, has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Air Force to develop an advanced cooling device for satellite integrated circuits.

Mainstream will create a distributed cooling system for satellite integrated circuits based on advanced microscale cooling technologies. Mainstream’s unique technology rejects 28.5% more heat than the conventional state-of-the-art techniques it is replacing.

While many employers in Brevard County are discussing reductions in force, Mainstream has seen its staff increase by 14% in the last year alone. This new Air Force contract will allow Mainstream to create additional engineering positions.

“This new Air Force contract award is another in a series of new contract awards to Mainstream. We are excited by both the technical innovations of this design and the potential to create more local jobs” stated Dr. Robert Scaringe, President of Mainstream.
