Thermal Control Solutions for Spacecraft Thermal Management
Redwire is transforming the future of space infrastructure by developing mission critical space solutions and high reliability components. Some of these solutions require high power spacecraft with the potential to provide advanced capabilities in space infrastructure; however, thermal management of high heat load systems is a significant challenge that must be overcome to enable widespread use. Redwire has developed thermal control solutions in the areas of thermal spreading, thermal energy transport, thermal energy storage, thermal switching, and thermal dissipation. Several designs and hardware technology are presented that focus on high thermal conductivity materials for thermal straps and thermal spreading technology, phase change material panels and embedded structures, and deployable radiators.
