Modular heat pipe radiators for enhanced Shuttle mission capabilities
Author and Affiliation:
Alario, J.(Grumman Aerospace Corp., Bethpage, NY, United States)
Haslett, R.(Grumman Aerospace Co., Bethpage, N.Y., United States)
Abstract: Current heat pipe radiator technology is reviewed and the results from three state-of-the-art hardware programs are summarized. Heat pipe radiators are shown to be an improvement over all-fluid loop panels for long duration space missions, when micrometeoroid survivability is important. Finally, several heat pipe radiator design concepts are presented which would enhance Shuttle mission capabilities by either extending mission life and/or augmenting heat rejection capability.
