Mainstream Engineering Awarded Contract from the Navy to Develop Lightweight Power Factor Correction (PFC) Hardware for Navy Aircraft

ROCKLEDGE, FL — August 31, 2018 — Mainstream Engineering Corporation, a 32-year-old Brevard County manufacturer with a history of leading-edge research and development has been awarded a contract from the Navy to produce lightweight Power Factor Correction (PFC) hardware that will correct for out-of-spec generator power factor.  The capacitance inherent in aircraft avionics causes the aircraft’s electric power factor to deviate from the specification rating range resulting in reliability and life issues.  Mainstream has been tasked with creating a system that is in parallel to the existing aircraft electrical power system, while also being able to withstand the environment experienced by a military combat aircraft. Mainstream will also demonstrate that the PFC hardware can be easily integrated into existing aircraft.
