Default Radiator area for 3e Vehicles

I find the 3e Vehicles and its two supplements to be the most useful vehicle construction kit for both any edition GURPS and any "realistic" RPG, period. Right now I'm working on designs for a early XXIII century space fleet in a setting that's primarily built for the Stars Without Number (an OSR sci-fi system) that, while won't be using GURPS level of detail, still can very much benefit for the detailed vehicle designs as the starting point from which to simplify.

That said, I fail to find any rule for calculating the required radiator area for a ship to successfully get rid of the excess heat (which, for a military spacecraft without any superscience tech, is going to be considerable), either in the main Vehicles book or in either of the expansions. I'll probably just go and adapt the material from the Atomic Rockets site (a truly invaluable resource for any hard sci-fi worldbuilder!) but I'm wondering if there might exist something that has already been GURPS-ified. TIA.
