Abstract

THE TECHNOLOGY IS BECOMING MATURE AND THE REPAIR ASPECTS ARE NOW BECOMING A MAJOR CONSIDERATION. IT IS EXPECTED THAT PRIOR ATTEMPTS TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM WILL BE PUT ASIDE AND AN ANSWER WILL BE SOUGHT IN THE APPLICATION OF NEW MATERIALS. A BLANKET MAY BE DEVELOPED THAT HAS THE ABILITY TO CONTROL IT.O. s OWN TEMPERATURE. THE ELIMINATION OF THE CLASSICAL TEMPERATURE CONTROLLER MAY BE POSSIBLE USING THIS TECHNOLOGY. THE TASK IS A SEARCH TASK IN THE AREA OF APPLICATIONS ENGINEERING. EXOTIC INSTRUMENTATION AND EXPENSIVE METHODS AREN'T NECESSARY.
