Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL IS SUBMITTED JOINTLY BY DYNATHERM AND ITS AFFILIATE THERMACORE. A STUDY IS PROPOSED THAT WILL EVALUATE SEVERAL THERMAL CONTROL CONCEPTS FOR SMALL SATELLITES WITH A NOMINAL THERMAL DISSIPATION OF 1 KW. FIVE CONCEPTS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED IN THE PROPOSAL: DEPLOYABLE RADIATORS, THERMAL STORAGE, HEAT PUMPS, VARIABLE CONDUCTANCE HEAT PIPES AND INTEGRATED STRUCTURAL HEAT PIPES. EACH CONCEPT WILL BE EVALUATED AGAINST THE REQUIREMENTS TO BE DEFINED JOINTLY WITH DARPA AND SATELLITE MANUFACTURES/INTEGRATORS. CRITICAL TECHNOLOGIES WILL BE IDENTIFIED AND BREADBOARD EXPERIMENTS OF CRITICAL COMPONENTS WILL BE PERFORMED. A PRELIMINARY DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS WILL BE GENERATED FOR THE MOST PROMISING CONCEPT.
