The Controlled Stagnation Radiator is primarily intended for human-rated single loop ATCS applications as most suitable non-toxic fluids are highly viscous and prone to stall under low heat loads in cold environments. As NASA develops deep space mission capabilities there will be a need for new habitat modules that would benefit from the incorporation of this technology. In addition, the developed technology could be incorporated into block upgrades of multiple commercial and NASA spacecraft to save weight and decrease complexity and costs. Additionally, surface habitat modules for the Moon and/or Mars could also benefit from the use of the Controlled Stagnation Radiator, especially as these colonies grow and require more radiator area to support higher maximum heat loads while still being functional at lower loads.
Companies such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Orbital ATK and Bigelow are known to be proposing development of habitat or EAM modules for the anticipated NASA missions to deep space. Additionally, Elon Musk of SpaceX is very up-front about his desire to send humans to Mars. All of these represent potential customers. Military customers have varied missions with periods of high and low thermal dissipation needs that would also benefit from the innovation. This includes directed energy, high-powered communication systems and Operationally Responsive spacecraft. Also, Mars One is still pursuing the colonization of Mars and continues development of surface modules. As Paragon is already a partner on this project to provide life support, it would make sense that the Controlled Stagnation Radiator concept could find its way to Mars.
