Thermal Design and Analysis of Columbus Pressurized Modules 901369

Thermal control design of Columbus pressurised modules has evolved throughout phases B and C0 of the program leading to the C/D proposal emission. Proposal comments by the European Space Agency (ESA), negotiation of interfaces between Space Station Freedom (SSF) partners, possible advantageous design commonalities among the attached pressurised modules and MTFF reconfiguration are ongoing activities.
This paper discusses the design solutions presented in the thermal control subsystem C/D proposal including modifications deriving from updated ESA requirements and preliminary feedback from negotiation of interfaces.
