The 28th Spacecraft Thermal Control Workshop

March 28 @ 8:00 am - March 30 @ 5:00 pm

The objective of this annual workshop, now in its 28th year, is to provide the aerospace community a forum to share new technology developments, analytical techniques, and lessons learned in spacecraft thermal control. Sessions at this year’s workshop will address aspects of spacecraft thermal control including:

  • Advanced Thermal Control Hardware
  • Spacecraft Thermal Control Design
  • Advanced Analysis Methods and Techniques
  • Thermal Test Methods and Applications
  • Lessons Learned in Spacecraft Thermal Control
  • Heat Pipe Technology
  • Thermal Control and Test in Emerging Space Technology

The Spacecraft Thermal Control Workshop plays a critical role in today’s space industry, fostering communication among representatives from industry, government, and academia. The workshop highlights the latest trends in spacecraft thermal management, technology needs and drivers, and encourages an understanding of how thermal science and engineering are being applied toward mission success today and into the future.

The companion “21st Workshop on Thermophysics in Microgravity” will precede the 2017 STC Workshop on Monday, March 27. Main topics include progress in fundamental research in thermal control technologies and flight applications for recent or upcoming missions. These technology discussions focus on single and two-phase flow technologies, convective and conductive heat transfer applications in microgravity, innovative thermal control devices, advanced thermal control concepts for future missions, spray cooling, and the latest developments in thermal control coatings. A separate registration fee is required for this workshop.
