Emerging Loop Heat Pipe Applications for Small-Sat, MARS Mission and ISS 2002-01-2464

Loop Heat Pipes (LHP) emerge as standard equipment for spacecraft thermal control. Based on a co-operation agreement between TAIS, Moscow and OHB-System AG, Bremen several thermal control projects for Mars mission, ISS and small satellites have been initiated, which are all based on loop heat pipes. The thermal control systems, described in this paper, are currently under development or hardware manufacturing. The paper will detail the application scenario, development steps and first test results.
