Active solar array thermal control system for the solar probe plus spacecraft
The Solar Probe Plus (SPP) spacecraft will orbit the Sun closer than any other previous probe. As dictated by the current mission design, the spacecraft will achieve many perihelia as close as 9.5 RS from the Sun. During those passes, it will encounter a solar flux of ~500 suns, or 70 W/cm2. This flux is more than 50 times larger than the solar heating seen by any previous spacecraft. During the entire mission, the spacecraft and science instruments will be protected by a Thermal Protection System (TPS), and elect ...
