Ice Sublimation for Cubesat Heat REjection Amid Microgravity (I-SCHREAM)

CubeSats are becoming more capable but are still limited compared to full-scale satellites. Typically, there is no thermal control system to dissipate heat from the CubeSat avionics which limits the onboard computing power. A thermal control system will allow CubeSats to fly more powerful computers, enabling more complex experiments to be conducted. Sublimators are a passive thermal control option with proven flight history.
