Abstract
NASA's program for Solar System Exploration will augment the current remote sensing approach to solar system exploration with a robust program that includes in situ measurements at key places. This requires robotic explorers capable of operation and survivability in high-temperature/high-pressure environment to service the needs of the future in situ exploration of Venus as well as atmospheric probes for giant planets. This program will design a Venus probe thermal management system capable of sustaining operation for 20 hours or more. To support the design, new thermal management technologies will be evaluated and considered for use the harsh Venusian environment.
