Thermal

We are developing thermal management solutions to some of the most challenging heat dissipation problems in high power aircraft and spacecraft electronic systems. By using two-phase and phase-change materials, our thermal management systems can be designed to be significantly lighter, smaller and more efficient than equivalent single-phase systems.

Our Focus

Improve waste heat management Size Weight and Power (SWaP) by:

  • Collaborating on system-level analysis and design with our electronic system customers
  • Developing practical designs that use of two-phase cooling
  • Adapting advanced manufacturing methods to reduce part cost

Our Capabilities

Roccor’s thermal team has a strong fundamental understanding of the underlying physics, a commitment to using cost-effective and scalable manufacturing methods, and thorough testing and performance characterization of our products. Our capabilities include:

  • Detailed component-level models for fluid flow and heat transfer (CFD and FEA)
  • Array of standard and custom thermal performance test benches
  • Diffusion bonding and additive manufacturing

“Waste heat management has emerged as the major mission-limiting challenge for spacecraft and military electronic systems and we are passionate about providing enabling solutions.”
