Abstract

The Capillary Pumped Deployable radiator (CPDR) is the mission equipment to verify the radiator deployment in the space and to transfer the heat from the equipment inside the CPDR to the deployable radiator by the Capillary Pumped Loop (CPL). It was installed on the Unmanned Space Experimental Recovery System (USERS) that was launched at the Tanegashima Space Center by the H- II launch vehicle on September 10th in 2003. In this paper we describe the summary of CPDR and on-orbit experimental result of CPL that was used in the CPDR.
