Abstract
Airborne high energy laser systems need lightweight and compact thermal management systems. Innovative heat exchanger concepts have been identified, which can help reduce thermal management system weight and volume to below 100 lbs and 8 cubic feet, respectively, while also reducing cost. Phase I tests and analyses have shown the feasibility of these heat exchangers. Under the proposed Phase II project, the innovative heat exchanger technologies, and associated thermal management system, will be developed, fabricated as prototype hardware and tested in the laboratory, to prove performance. Using analysis and test results, the thermal management system weight and volume will be projected, to show that the system can meet Navy targets, at reduced cost.
