Quest insulates NASA RRM3 flight dewar with IMLI

NASA's Robotic Refueling Mission 3 (RRM3) team selected Quest IMLI to insulate the receiver/dewar for use in an ISS flight experiment. This will likely be the second IMLI spaceflight.  RRM3 is developing new methods for refueling satellites and space instruments for longer operational life.  IMLI was designed, installed, tested and validated on a ground test article. IMLI was then installed on flight hardware, tested, and provided for integration into the RRM3 experiment pallet, IMLI heat flux was modeled to be 0.515 W through the blanket, with a measured heat flux of 0.517 W.
