Abstract:

Space based platforms require substantial on-board power systems with a need for waste heat rejection. Prior work performed on such programs as SUPER has led to the design of carbon/carbon radiators with refractory metal tubular heat transfer fluid circuits embedded in the composite. These radiators survive anticipated threats, but are very expensive. Ceramic Composites has developed a concept that allows radiators of the highest thermal conductivity carbon/carbon composites with high thermal efficiency at low manufacturing costs. The cost effective nature of their design and the associated construction techniques makes the radiators potentially attractive for use in commercial satellite systems.
