Multi-layer Insulation Thermal Conductivity Experiment

Investigation of the performance of multi-layer insulation for space-based applications.

The Multi-layer Insulation Thermal Conductivity Experiment measures the thermal performance of multi-layer insulation (MLI). This lightweight insulation is composed of alternating thin reflective layers with insulating layers and is used as a high performance insulation for spacecraft, cryogen storage tanks, MRI's, and space-borne instruments.
