Solving Complex Thermal Challenges of Today’s Space Market


With growing demands for satellite capabilities, cislunar innovation, and lunar surface technologies, thermal management is becoming a hot (and cold) topic in the space industry! Thermal solutions for complex challenges — such as surviving lunar night for rovers, managing the hot and cold side of nuclear power generation, and controlling environment in space habitats — are essential. This 60-minute Webinar will cover technologies being used in current flight environments and technologies being developed for future missions.

Topics include:

  • A high-level overview of technology options for a variety of missions
  • Resources to enable future designs and connections to thought leaders in space thermal management
  • Future-mission technologies including constant-conductance heat pipes (CCHPs), loop heat pipes (LHPs), 3D-printed LHPs, pulsating heat pipes, and high-temperature heat pipes
  • Passive thermal control valves to mitigate challenges of long-duration cold environments
  • Active thermal control systems such as pumped single- and two-phase solutions

An audience Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.
