Abstract
This proposal relates to a new materials concept for an aluminum-carbon nanofiber composite, high thermal conductivity ultra lightweight material that will form the basis for robust, lightweight deployable metallic radiator designs. Specifically, this program will result in availability of high thermal conductivity, low coefficient of expansion, extremely low density carbon nanotube-reinforced aluminum composites suitable for use in radiator panel facesheets, closeouts, supports and joints.
