dc.description.abstract The Jet Propulsion Laboratory is developing a two-phase mechanically pumped fluid loop (2PMPFL) thermal control system to enable novel mission designs and greater science return for NASA. Pumped two-phase fluid loops have the potential to provide robust and effective thermal control that combine the best aspects of passive two-phase systems (heat pipes) and mechanically pumped single-phase fluid loops. The current requirements include the development of a system with multiple 1 m2 evaporators, each of which is capable of remaining spatially and temporally isothermal while accommodating heat loads of up to 500 W and local fluxes of up to 5 W/cm2. The goal is to attain this using less than 5 W of power. Such a system would be able to accommodate the next generation of payload and bus electronics while using minimal resources. en_US
