  • Analyse heat pipe cooling solution and list its main limitations (gravity, cooling capacity)

  • Identify the appropriate technologies capable to solve those limitations → Loop Heat Pipe appears to be the best alternative

  • Calculate heat exchanger volume necessary to achieve the same thermal performance as the current cooling device

  • Heat exchanger design and thermal simulation to validate the performance

  • Exchange surface has been reduced from 38000cm² to 21000cm²

  • Prototyping and tests validating the LHP capacity to operate against gravity thanks to capillary pumping effect

  • Weight reduction more than 1.5Kg over 4.8KG with previous product
