Next-gen spacecraft thermal control technolgy

Shown is the Advanced Structurally Embedded Thermal Spreader (ASETS)-II supporting the oscillating heat programs developed at the Air Force Research Laboratory Space Vehicles Directorate at Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M. In an effort to deploy the next generation of spacecraft thermal control technology, AFRL has partnered with ThermAvant Technologies and Maxar Technologies to develop Oscillating Heat Pipes (OHPs) that provide lightweight and highly-efficient temperature control on higher-power, yet smaller spacecraft.
