THERMAL CONTROL TEAM (GTER)

GTER - RESEARCHS

There two main research lines for GTER: COOPER and CONTER. COOPER research line consider the cooperation other researchs institutions, such as Federal University of Parana (UFPR) wich also has a thermal group. The research line CONTER are internal to DMC.



RESEARCHS IN PROGRESS

COOPER - COOPERATION RESEARCHS



RESEARCHS COMPLETED:

CONTER - THERMAL CONTROL RESEARCH

  • CPL - Capillary Pumped Loop

First Prototype
Second Prototype

  • PCM - Phase Change Material package

  PCM BOX subjected to tests

  • TL - Thermal Louvers
  • VCHP - Variable Conductance Heat Pipes

RESEARCHS COMPLETED

COOPER - RESEARCH IN COOPERATION


  • Thermal Control of a start sensor
    • (Cooperator: INPE/DEA. Resp.: Valeri Vlassov)
  • Thermal control of the ground simulator for tests of horizon sensor - STH
    • (Cooperator INPE/DEA. Resp.: Valeri Vlassov)
  • Capillary Pumped Loop - CPL-2
    • Cooperations with UFSC/Florianópolis and CLEMSON University, USA. A thermal circuit with capilary pumped. The prototype and flight model would be a edperimental peyload of a French-Brazil satellite. Resp.: Valeri Vlassov)
  • Calometric Radiation Meter
    • Qualified for space usage. This equipment was developed at INPE and it would be part of experimental payload "fluximetric radiometer", of UFSC, onboard of French-Brazil Satellite. Resp. Fabiano.
  • UNIESPAÇO project - Radiator based on variable conductance heat pipes.
    • Cooperator: UFSC. Acompanhamento do desenvolvimento de dispositivos de controle térmico: radiador com tubos de calor; sistema de refrigeração de detetores a temperaturas criogênicas, diodo térmico, e outros.).
