The extreme environment of space requires
a transient 3D thermal solver that accurately
predicts system performance.

Understanding Spacecraft Thermal Control

Responsible for maintaining proper temperature levels in the harsh environment of space, the thermal control system is a critical component of any satellite. This system typically uses a combination of passive and active techniques to manage temperature using radiation and conduction. Using advanced modeling and simulation tools, like MuSES, these systems can be designed and optimized to consider various factors including heat generation, dissipation, and distribution. Understanding these systems is crucial for mission planners and engineers to ensure mission success.

Understanding Your Maximum Design Temperature

Maximum design temperature is an important consideration for spacecraft and satellite design, as it helps ensure the system's ability to withstand the harsh environment of space. Modeling and simulation tools, like MuSES, are essential for accurately predicting and analyzing the maximum design temperature of a spacecraft or satellite. These tools enable engineers to test the behavior of the system under a variety of environmental conditions, including solar radiation, atmospheric density, and magnetic fields. By using modeling and simulation tools, engineers can optimize the design of the spacecraft's thermal management system, selecting the most appropriate materials, components, and techniques for achieving the desired temperature range. This approach helps ensure that the spacecraft can operate safely and effectively in space, and helps reduce the risks associated with space missions.

ThermoAnalytics has supported the defense industry for over two decades with expertise, software, and engineering services.

As the global leader in EO/IR simulation, we provide low observables design and the technology to virtually assess target-background contrast anywhere on earth. Electro-optics and infrared signature are extensively employed for target acquisition and guidance systems. However, the target itself is only part of the radiance solution; our technologies include the effectiveness of background source radiance, solar loads, even diffuse sky radiance. By developing software-based in physics, we bring EO/IR reality into focus.
