Title: Pressure Controlled Heat Pipe for Precise Temperature Control
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNX08CA35C
Award Amount: $595,751.00
 

Abstract:

The principal Phase II objective is to refine and further develop the prototype PCHP into a useful thermal management tool. The Phase I program established the feasibility of thermal control an axially-grooved heat pipe with a variable-volume reservoir. The follow-on Phase II program will address control system optimization, component longevity, reductions in mass and power, and show that the device can be flight qualified. It is expected that the Phase II results will bring the PCHP to TRL 6: Prototype Demonstration in a Relevant Environment.
