SPACE CHALLENGE: “Two-Phase Heat Transfer for Cubesats”
Argotec is a member of the Organizing Committee at the 19th International Heat Pipe Conference. In this context Argotec sponsors the Space Challenge “Two-Phase Heat Transfer for Cubesats”.
This Challenge seeks to foster the creation of new – or to advance existing – two phase heat transfer systems for application on board CubeSats or small satellites (maximum size 12U). Given the current technological trend pushing towards the miniaturization of satellites, the challenge is open to heat transfer systems that can be applied to either Earth or Deep Space missions. For the participation to the Challenge, candidates are invited to submit the documentation describing the proposed technology according to the challenge rules.
For the participation to the Challenge, candidates are invited to submit a full paper by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org not later than May 04, 2018 at 17.00 hours (CET).
One paper will be selected and the main author will be the winner of the Space Challenge. The winner will be notified one month before the conference and awarded in Pisa during the International Heat Pipe Conference.
The challenge offers an incentive prize to encourage the development of innovative solutions for heat transfer problems that can be of interest to the whole Space community. The winner of the contest will have the free access to the congress.
Moreover, Argotec will offer to the winner the opportunity to be supported by the Argotec Team for the design, integration and testing of the proposed heat transfer technology. He/she will have also the possibility to integrate and test the technology at the Argotec laboratories, in Turin (Italy).
