Abstract
Airborne high power laser systems need lightweight and compact thermal management systems, which can respond to thermal loads within 10 seconds. An innovative heat exchanger concept has been identified, which can reduce system weight and volume to below 100 lbs and 8 cubic feet, respectively, while also reducing pressure drop and cost. Under the proposed project, the innovative heat exchanger technology will be analyzed, developed and tested, to prove performance. In addition, the complete thermal management system, which incorporates this heat exchanger, will be analyzed to show that steady and transient system performance meet Navy requirements, and that costs are reduced, versus conventional approaches.
