Contract: N68936-12-C-0121
Award Amount: $399,589.00
 

Abstract:

Airborne high energy laser thermal management systems need lightweight and compact radiators. An innovative radiator heat exchanger concept has been identified, which can help reduce thermal management system weight and volume, to below 100 lbs and 8 cubic feet, respectively, while also reducing cost. Phase I and II tests and analyses have shown the potential of these heat exchangers. Under the proposed Phase II.5 project, the innovative radiator heat exchanger, and associated thermal management system, will be developed, fabricated as prototype hardware and tested in the laboratory, to prove performance. Using analysis and test results, the thermal management system weight and volume will be projected, to show that the system can meet Navy targets, at reduced cost.
