Abstract
THIS PROJECT IS CONCERNED WITH AN ENGINEERING ASSESSMENT OF THE POTENTIAL OF INTRINSIC SURFACES AS MAINTENANCE-FREE RADIATING SURFACES FOR LONG-LIVED SPACECRAFT. AN INTRINSIC SURFACE IS ONE WHOSE RADIATING CHARACTERISTICS DERIVE FROM ITS GEOMETRY RATHER THAN FROM THE THERMAL PROPERTIES OF THE SURFACE MATERIALS THEMSELVES. AN INTRINSIC SURFACE, BY ITS NATURE, IS VIRTUALLY UNAFFECTED BY FACTORS THAT CHANGE ITS SURFACE EMISSIVITY, SUCH AS EVAPORATION AND DEPOSITS.
