Enhanced softgoods structures for spacesuit micrometeoroid/debris protective systemsA lightweight, flexible thermal micrometeoroid garment (TMG) design for enhanced space suit micrometeoroid/debris (M/D) protection is described. It will consist of an outer layer comprised of orthofabric, multilayers of aluminized Mylar, and a layer of silicone rubber loaded with micron sized particles of tungsten. The shield layers would fragment and/or vaporize the M/D projectile while the backup sheet would stop the resultant debris cloud.
