Abstract During the last few years, the potential applications of highly conductive polymer composites to spacecraft structures and equipment has received great interest. Amoco{close_quote}s K1100X fiber is currently the only fiber available that, in a practical laminate form (pseudoisotropic), exhibits similar thermal properties to copper. In a unidirectional laminate form, moreover, the fiber exhibits a thermal conductivity 60{percent} greater than pure copper. This paper reports on some specific properties of this material system and how it can be utilized on spacecraft structures and equipment to take advantage of its unique thermal characteristics. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}
