Flow Boiling in Microgap Coolers - Validation via Suborbital Flight

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Flow Boiling in Microgap Coolers - Validation via Suborbital Flight
This modest research program completes the effort that had to be terminated early in FY17. The focus is on completing testing of the previously developed micro-channel coolers. Specific efforts in this restart include the initial development of a miniature two-phase flow loop to be flown aboard a suborbital flight awarded by the NASA Flight Opportunities Program. Flight validation of the ground-testing results will complete the technology maturation required for near-term mission infusion. More »
