About Us Technical Services Engineering Tools Contact Us

ASL's technical services areas are listed below. ASL personnel with many years of specialized experience and training create exceptional products in each area. Our test facilities provide additional resources to support specialized needs.


Thermal Control

Thermal Analysis
ASL performs thermal modeling, design, and analysis on complex space systems and components.  ASL has provided thermal engineering services to many customer.  In particular, ASL has been providing continuous thermal engineering support to the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) since 1996. Our staff have received several prestigious awards for outstanding service from NASA and JPL.





Thermal Insulation Analysis, Optimization, and Testing
ASL has in-depth experience in the analysis and testing of high performance thermal insulation materials such as space shuttle tile TPS, fiber-reinforced aerogels, fiber batt insulation, woven fabrics, etc. ASL has developed theoretical models that can accurately predict the thermal radiative properties and heat transfer characteristics of thermal insulations that are fabricated of fibers, aerogel, and particles. The theoretical models are based on a rigorous consideration of electromagnetic scattering and radiative transfer theory and have been validated with published test data. ASL has published and presented more than 40 papers in archival journals and conferences on the theory and testing of thermal insulations.
