A three way valve selectively charges or discharges gas under pressure within the annular gaps between a series of transversely extending longitudinally spaced radiator tubes fixed to a radiator panel to control waste heat rejection and coaxial inner tubes which may comprise heat pipes or turns of a sinuous coolant flow tube for spacecraft, earth satellites and the like to thermal couple and decouple the heat pipe or coolant flow tube to the space radiator.
A pneumatically controlled, wide heat load, space radiator assembly for a spacecraft, earth satellite, or the like, said radiator assembly comprising in combination: a heat radiator mounted to the spacecraft for thermal radiation to space, said heat radiator having a face, at least one tube array mounted to the face of the heat radiator in thermal conducting fashion, said array comprising concentric, radially spaced, longitudinally extending inner and outer heat conductive tubes, means defining a sealed annular gap between said tubes of a given longitudi...
