Abstract
In this paper, we will describe the conceptual thermal design of Space Solar Telescope (SST) and the requirement of it. SST will be placed into a 732km, 98.6 degree inclination, solar inertial orbit. For observing the sun, the telescope adds greater flexibility in the control of the heater system. The set points for the telescope and all attached payload elements, and consequently spacecraft heater power requirements, the special thermal control requirement of the focus plane instrument will be discussed in this paper.
