In this program a feasibility study was conducted of a conductive cooling system for cooling a man in space. In the concept studied the cooling was provided by a porous plate sublimator and controlled by a variable thermal conductance layer. The results of the tests performed demonstrate the need for advances in technology and further development work to make this concept feasible.
