Paper Abstract

Thermal design for space systems is an iterative process that balances the temperature requirements for all mission phases with the available resources. Secondary payloads often have to be designed for a wide range of conditions available on various launch platforms, without the benefit of additional resources such as power or thermal shielding. This paper will discuss the thermal design, analysis, and thermal vacuum testing of a small satellite payload that was initially intended for launch from the US Space Shuttle and eventually launched on the EELV Heavy demonstration in December 2004.
