Mezzo Technologies fabricates high performance micro channel radiators, condensers, evaporators and Phase Change Material (PCM) heat exchangers. The attributes of Mezzo's products include high heat transfer/volume, heat transfer/weight, heat transfer/air side pressure drop, and unique geometry options. Directed Energy cooling systems can utilize a variety of heat exchange components, including radiators, condensers, and PCM heat exchangers. By using Mezzo's micro channel products, the size and weight of these systems can be dramatically decreased. The Phase I effort will develop designs that quantify the expected savings. The expectation exists that factor of 2 reduction in size and weight will be acheived by using Mezzo-designed products (condensers, PCM heat exchanger, and radiator).
