    Abstract

    This note describes a novel approach for the provision of a thermally controlled testing chamber. The main principal of the system is to use a layer of cooled air as an active insulation medium to convect away heat transferred through conventional passive insulation. Results from laboratory floor and centrifuge tests are reported. Observed and predicted performance capabilities of the chamber are also discussed.
