SANTA ROSA, Calif., March 24, 2016 — Deposition Sciences Inc. offers Sunshade material, a thermally insulating, broadband electromagnetic window for satellite systems. The electromagnetic thin-film solution is manufactured with nonmetallic coatings and has no laser ablation or patterning. The coating is tailorable for front and back surfaces to provide stress balance and emissivity control.
The film is designed to protect satellites from solar radiation, providing radio-frequency transparency at all frequencies below 18 GHz, allowing 99.4 percent of the energy to pass through. It reflects up to −25 dB at all frequencies below 18 GHz and up to −30 dB at all frequencies below 8 GHz.
The material is available in large format, covering areas up to 2.5 × 10 ft. It controls temperatures passively, can transmit high-speed data and also allows static charge to bleed off.
