Abstract:

Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) will develop polymer matrix composite systems with imbedded microvasular networks that act as conduits for the transport of thermally conductive nanofluids. Optimized to withstand the grueling environmental conditions experienced in the stratosphere including atomic oxygen (AO), ozone (O3), and ultraviolet (UV) light exposure; material development will result in a new skin system that has the capability of transporting heat throughout the entire surface area of HALE aircraft, which can exceed 500 m2. The ability to transfer heat across such a large surface area will compensate for low convection coefficients.
