CC-75-500: Reducing Weight in Future Satellites
Satellite sensors and electronics generate a lot of waste heat. To prevent them from overheating, the heat must be emitted to space with radiators. Until now, the radiator temperature always had to be below the systems to be cooled in order to allow for the heat to flow out. Radiator temperatures of around 50 °C lead to bulky and heavy radiators. A unit increase in radiator temperature results in a quadrupling of the radiated energy per surface area. In order to build future satellites... (read more)
