Thermal Design of the ENVISAT-1 ASAR Active Antenna

1997-07-01
972532
Further decoupling between Panels and between Tiles has allowed the ASAR Antenna Thermal design to be verified at SubSystem level rather than at full Antenna level. The Thermal Control of the Antenna in OFF modes, using heaters and thermostats, had to be optimised in order to minimise the number of heater circuits and the heater power consumed. ...The Thermal design of the ENVISAT-1 ASAR Active Antenna has provided many engineering challenges. The selection of the Thermal Control has been complicated by the need to dissipate the high power (1300 watts) generated by the active equipments that are mounted on the Antenna Tile Sub-System directly behind the radiating surface. ...The selection of the Thermal Control has been complicated by the need to dissipate the high power (1300 watts) generated by the active equipments that are mounted on the Antenna Tile Sub-System directly behind the radiating surface. This high power has to be dissipated from the Antenna whilst minimising heater power consumption.

This specification describes the functionality and interfaces of an Internet Protocol (IP)-based wireless communications system between an aircraft on the ground and a ground-based network using Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and/or cellular radios and protocols. ...The ground-based network will be primarily used to provide connectivity to an airline's back office or to its back-end maintenance systems although other uses are also possible when there is a need to transfer data to or from the aircraft's applications while it is taxiing or parked. Gatelink is the accepted industry term for this type of connection.

HALCA is a scientific satellite with a large deployable antenna to make experiments on space VLBI. The deployable antenna, developed under the requirements of large aperture area and accurate reflector surface, is formed of complicated structures and lots of mechanisms. ...Though heat exchange in the antenna was complicated and difficult to evaluate, antenna thermal performance in orbit was within expectations and all mechanisms were adequately controlled until the antenna deployment. ...Though heat exchange in the antenna was complicated and difficult to evaluate, antenna thermal performance in orbit was within expectations and all mechanisms were adequately controlled until the antenna deployment. This paper describes thermal control design of the large deployable antenna, thermal design verification in the thermal balance test, and evaluation of performance in orbit.

Self-Deployable Foam Antenna Structures for Earth Observation Radiometer Applications

2006-01-2064
The overall goal of this program was the development of a 10 m. diameter, self-deployable antenna based on an open-celled rigid polyurethane foam system. Advantages of such a system relative to current inflatable or self-deploying systems include high volumetric efficiency of packing, high restoring force, low (or no) outgassing, low thermal conductivity, high dynamic damping, mechanical isotropy, infinite shelf life, and easy fabrication with methods amenable to construction of large structures (i.e., spraying). ...As part of a NASA Phase II SBIR, Adherent Technologies and its research partners, Temeku Technologies, and NASA JPL/Caltech, conducted activities in foam formulation, interdisciplinary analysis, and RF testing to assess the viability of using open cell polyurethane foams for self-deploying antenna applications.
