Abstract
THE PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A MEMBRANE-BASED HEAT PIPE SYSTEM THAT OFFERS A NUMBER OF ADVANTAGES OVER CONVENTIONAL HEAT PIPES. IN PARTICULAR, THE HEAT TRANSFER CAPABILITIES OF THEPROPOSED SYSTEM ARE VERY HIGH, ON THE ORDER OF 1-10 KILOWATTS/HR. THE SYSTEM CAN ALSO TRANSPORT THE HEAT LONG DISTANCES IN BOTH LOW-GRAVITY AND HIGH-GRAVITY ENVIRONMENTS.IN THE PROPOSED PHASE I PROGRAM, THE OVERALL FEASIBILITY OF THE CONCEPT WOULD BE DEMONSTRATED. IN A LATER PHASE II PROGRAM, A PROTOTYPE DEMONSTRATION UNIT WOULD BE BUILT.
