1. A thermal management system, comprising:
a cooling system configured to supply a cooling medium;
a receiver having a receiver outlet, the receiver configurable to store a refrigerant fluid, with the cooling system configurable to cool the refrigerant fluid in the receiver with the cooling medium;
an evaporator in thermal conductive contact with a heat load and coupled to the receiver outlet, the evaporator configurable to receive refrigerant fluid from the receiver outlet and to extract heat from the heat load;
a control device configurable to control a temperature of the heat load; and
an exhaust line, with the receiver, the evaporator, the control device, and the exhaust line coupled to form an open-circuit refrigerant fluid flow path.
