Abstract
FEEDBACK POSITIONING AND CONTROL OF ONE FLIGHT CONTROL HYDRAULIC ACTUATOR REQUIRES DOZENS OF WIRES BETWEEN THE ACTUATOR AND FLIGHT CONTROL COMPUTER. IT IS DESIRABLE TO REDUCE THIS WIRE COUNT BY INCORPORATING FEEDBACK LOOP CLOSURE AND REDUNDANCY MANAGEMENT ELECTRONICS ON OR WITHIN THE FLIGHT CONTROL ACTUATOR. A RELIABLE COOLING METHOD WILL BE NEEDED TO OPERATE FLIGHT CRITICAL ELECTRONICS IN THIS ENVIRONMENT. THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A PROGRAM TO DEVELOP A FLEXIBLE HEAT PIPE COLD PLATE FOR THIS APPLICIATION. THE FLIGHT CRITICAL ELECTRONICS WOULD BE MOUNTED ON A COLD PLATE. THE WASTE HEAT WOULD BE TRANSFERRED TO A HEAT SINK VIA A FLEXIBLE HEAT PIPE INTEGRAL WITH THE COLD PLATE. THE PROPOSED WORK PROGRAM IS BASED ON USING COLD PLATE AND FLEXIBLE HEAT PIPE TECHNOLOGY. IT COVERS DEFINITION OF REQUIREMENTS THROUGH ANALYSIS, FABRICATION, AND TEST OF DEMONSTRATION HARDWARE.
