Hybrid C-C/Foam Thermal Radiators
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
"Currently used polymeric composites in space thermal management suffer from high cost, low thermal conductivity and CRe mismatch with metallic housing. A novel hybrid carbon-carbon (C-C) composite/graphite foam approach is proposed. C-C composite offersstructural requirements, while foam provides additional thermal performance and low modules for the strain isolation with metallic housing. Up to 50% weight savings over Al radiators. Commercial satellites."
