Research Institution
Midé proposes an innovative new acoustic/thermal liner fabric for noise reduction in military shelters. The concept combines lightweight, insulating solids that do not propagate airborne sound waves with flame-resistant open cell foam. The solids are highly porous, non-hazardous silica, described as a lattice network of glass strands with very small pores. The solids content is extremely low, making it both extremely light in weight and an excellent insulating solid for both acoustic and thermal protection. The proposed liner would replace the existing thermal liner currently fielded in fabric shelters. It would provide thermal insulation, flame resistance, breathability, maximized acoustic noise reduction, and ultra low density in a package that meets the ¼" thickness target.
