AASC routinely fabricates thermal control structures as part of our delivered satellite bus assemblies or as individual panel deliverables. These panels range from high temperature capable thermal shields and shrouds to payload heat pipe panels to large surface deployable radiators.
AASC has fabricated hundreds of heat pipe panels in varying sizes and configurations. Most include some sort of thermal paint, heaters or optical solar reflectors as a finished surface. The largest panel AASC has fabricated is 110" x 180" with larger panel capability available. AASC is experienced with embedding single bore, dual bore and single and dual layer configurations, as required.
