TAUVEX (Tel Aviv Ultra Violet EXplorer) is an astronomical telescope designed and built by EL-OP in conjunction with the Tel Aviv University Wise Observatory, for space research. It will be launched on the SRG satellite in 1995 as a part of the SODART X-Ray telescope. The thermal design has to cope with the extreme space environmental conditions caused by the solar heat flux and deep space, the satellite low power consumption requirement and the temperature restrictions of the various optical elements combined with surface finish requirements dictated by the stray light demands. In this paper we summarize the TAUVEX design considerations and the analysis which leads to the final thermal design.
