Foil Insulation Films used by Deep Space Climate Observatory Satellite

The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Deep Space Climate Observatory: DSCOVR was launched on February 11, 2015. DSCOVR will fly for 155 days, higher than most satellites, nearly one million miles from earth. It will locate to a position where the gravitational pull from the sun and Earth is essentially in balance, in order to stay within the Earth’s orbit.

DSCOVR will provide critical data for NOAA space weather forecasters to issue timely and accurate warnings of solar storms. Certain storms caused by solar emissions, disrupt our power grid infrastructure, telecommunications systems, and aviation and GPS satellites. DSCOVR is expected to provide an hour or more early warning of solar storms, giving those responsible for maintaining and protecting vulnerable technology the time needed to take appropriate action.

In addition to the space weather instruments, DSCOVR will carry two NASA Earth-observing instruments that gather ozone, aerosol, cloud, and vegetation measurements (EPIC) and changes in the Earth’s radiation budget (NISTAR).

Multi-layer foil insulation was used to protect its critical components from the thermal dangers of space. This high performing reflective insulation is being used to shield the satellite’s propulsion system, the Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) system, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology Advanced Radiometer (NISTAR) system.

Astro-Shield, AstroECO and Astro-Therm products from Innovative Energy are made from similar component materials Dunmore Corporation supplied to NOAA. Setting the standard in performance, reliability and durability, the films have a unique combination of electrical, thermal, chemical and mechanical properties that assures that Innovative Energy products set the standard in the reflective insulation industry.

“I’m proud to see thermal insulating metallizing films being used in such an exciting and important application,” said Bob Wadsworth, president of Innovative Energy. “Our clients don’t need protection to the extent of space travel, but their investments are just as critical.”
