Thermal control is what allows a satellite to maintain its temperature within set parameters during its lifetime. It covers a very wide temperature range, from the cryogenic level (-270 degrees C) to high-temperature thermal protection systems (more than 2000 degrees C).

The authors, with their extensive experience in aerospace engineering, provide detailed chapters on how to design a Space Thermal Control System comprehensively. They begin with an overview of the basic and specific concepts of a space mission, its development phases, the environment it must withstand, the orbits and trajectories needed to accomplish the mission and the subsystems that help to achieve this, before moving on to explain the fundamentals of heat transfer.  The concluding two sections focus on the numerous technologies that can be employed in the thermal control subsystem and the formal aspects of spacecraft development, specifically the design, analysis and testing
