Abstract : A novel heat management system for aircraft is provided which is based on the aircraft fuel as the heat exchange medium and comprises a dedicated thermal reserves fuel tank for containing refrigerated aircraft fuel (or other expendable liquid) which is cooled by heat exchange with the primary aircraft fuel flow to the engines; a fuel line loop for conducting fuel through a plurality of heat exchangers associated with cooling loops for heat generating aircraft systems; and a central microprocessor based controller for controlling fuel flow and temperature throughout the fuel loop system and into the aircraft engine.
