Abstract : This introduces China's returnable satellite thermal control design plans. On the basis of the special characteristics of China's returnable type satellites, it describes the applications of thermal inertia methods in thermal design. Comparisons between ground heat experiment data and flight telemetry temperature data clearly show that the two agree together well. Heat control system operations were normal. Satellite body and satellite interior instrument temperatures all fell relatively well into required ranges.
