Project Introduction

Phase Change Material (PCM) Heat Exchanger Development

The primary focus of the project is to provide future space vehicles a reliable form of long duration supplemental heat rejection (SHREDs). SHREDs allow a vehicle to reject waste energy when nominal means do not allow so. The project is investigating, through partnerships with UTC Aerospace and Mezzo Technologies, the use of wax and water based PCM Hx. The project will culminate with a technology demonstration on ISS.
