It is stated that by
High performance insulation materials are required on spacecraft and cryogenic space systems for maintaining consistent spacecraft and subsystem temperatures in the space environment to operatem them for long time and more efficiently.
The company stated that the new IMLI offers many benefits to conventional insulation and is structurally more robust, lighter and easier to install by using rigid spacers instead of netting to separate radiation layers.
It also has a nearly 30% thermal performance increase over conventional multi-layer insulation; the IMLI's increased thermal capability is critical for minimizing heat transference and boil-off of cryogenic storage systems.
IMLI manufacturer Quest, a small company located in
Oschmann said, Utilizing a small business to innovate a new product and adding it to the GPIM mission demonstrates the synergy between all of the Space Technology project offices to develop and infuse technology into the market. Our collaboration on GPIM further enables
