Several passive cooling systems can be considered for these applications such as vapour chambers, heat pipes, high temperature loop heat pipes, Such systems have background on space systems and environments; however, the demonstration of their functioning in avionic application, by modeling and experimental tests, is required before being equipped on an airplane.
