Thermal panels are used in spacecrafts and planned for thermal management in aircraft electronics and power systems. The requirements are light-weight, highly conductive emerging carbon materials that can withstand the stresses in the specific applications. A number of carbon fiber reinforced carbon-carbon and organic matrix composite panels were fabricated and tested by using a cryogenic Flash Diffusivity instrument and Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC). The properties were measured at cryogenic and above ambient temperatures.
