Thermal/electrical/structural integrated thermal design conception was applied for one space optical remote sensor. According to the integrated design conception, component structure and calorigenic equipments layout of remote sensor are optimized, and heat capacity and heat consumption of calorigenic equipments are managed systemically with the purpose of reducing heat pipe layout difficulty, decreasing number of heat pipe used for heat transfer, controlling remote sensor weight, and saving electrical power for heaters. Application of the integrated design conception on the remote sensor fully proved its advantages.
