Abstract

One of the problems that needs to be solved in order to achieve a successful space mission is to ensure suitable thermal behavior of all the spacecraft subsystems, which may not seem critical or problematic in the case of Earth-based equipment. However, it is crucial in the space environment.

Keywords

Heat Pipe Thermal Control View Factor Thermal Protection System Thermal Contact Conductance 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
