Abstract : A computerized data retrieval system for thermal control coatings was devised. This general classification system for coatings, while specifically oriented toward optical characteristics for satellite use, can have other applications. The basic use of this system is directed to thermal designers and materials engineers in the aerospace field for data retrieval. This document presents an 'out-of-the-design-loop' assist to the thermal designer for selection of the optimum coatings. It is anticipated that with acceptance and inevitable modifications to this basic system, it can be placed into the thermal design computer program in the near future. (Author)
