Interplanetary dust particle shielding capability of spacecraft multi-layer insulation
The Solar Probe Plus (SPP) spacecraft is expected to encounter unprecedented levels of interplanetary dust particle (IDP) exposure during its approximately 7-year journey. To assure mission success it is necessary to define the dust hypervelocity impact (HVI) protection levels provided by its Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI)/thermal blankets with a reliability that is on par with that available for metallic Whipple shields. Development of a new ballistic limit equation (BLE) in the 7-150 km/s HVI range for representative 2-wall ...
