Two-Phase Thermal Control Technology for Small Spacecraft Exploration

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

The challenge of this task is to provide an order of magnitude reduction in thermal control power using half the mass while accommodating high heat fluxes and milli-Kelvin stability required for enhanced science.

This task will develop a 2-φ mechanically pumped fluid loop thermal control system for small spacecraft that minimizes system resources, manages spacecraft temperatures, reclaims and redistributes waste heat, and provides science-enabling thermal stability.
