A method and apparatus for supplying cooling air on vehicles such as high speed aircraft includes diverting high pressure air from the compressor section of a gas turbine engine, cooling this air in a heat exchanger, compressing the air and subsequently cooling the air in a second heat exchanger to provide cooled, high pressure air. One embodiment additionally provides cooled air at relatively medium pressure and relatively low pressure, while the alternate embodiment additionally provides cooled air at relatively low pressure.
A method for producing cooled air at both relatively high and low pressures for use with components of a vehicle, said method comprising: providing at least one gas turbine engine in said vehicle, said engine having in serial flow arrangement a low pressure compressor and a high pressure compressor, said low pressure compressor for compressing ambient air to produce compressed air at a first pressure and said high pressure compressor for compressing air at said first pressure to produce compressed air at a second pressure, said high pressure compressor h...
