Abstract:
The ADRAD deployable radiator is in development at Swales Aerospace to provide additional heat rejection area for spacecraft without envelope impact. The ADRAD design incorporates ALPHA loop heat pipes, an aluminum honeycomb radiator with embedded condenser, OSR optical coating, spherical bearing hinges, pyrotechnic release devices and snubbers. This paper describes the design of ADRAD to a set of “generic” GEO requirements, including a nominal heat rejection capacity of 1250 W. Thermal, structural and mechanism considerations are described along with the comprehensive systems approach necessary to produce an integrated subsystem.
