Shingle Multilayer Insulation for Space Vehicles Using Cryogenic Fluids
An efficient multilayer thermal protection system design is necessary for the successful development of spacecraft using cryogenic propellants for mission durations of more than a day. This design must satisfy the requirements peculiar to the mission and perform satisfactorily when subjected to the often contradictory demands of ground hold, ascent, and space environments.
