Abstract:

This report covers the first year of a research program on the feasibility of a novel concept for the rejection of waste heat in space--the moving belt radiator. Chief concerns of the program are 1 materials seizure, 2 thermal conductance, 3 fatigue of the belt materials, and 4 high-temperature, high-speed bearings, all in the hard vacuum environment of space. The facility required for achieving the ultrahigh vacuum in a clean environment was completed and three ultrahigh vacuum seizure and heat transfer test rigs were put into operation. In addition, two ultrahigh vacuum, high-temperature bearing test rigs were built and bearing material tests were initiated. Author
