Abstract
A solar instrument by means of which the rate at which heat traverses layers of fabrics or similar materials can be measured over time intervals of the order of seconds is described. It may also be used to measure fabric reflectance for sunglight. The instrument uses direct sunlight, which is slightly divergent (1/2 degree) radiation of similar spectral energy distribtion to that of an atomic bomb at expected ranges. Different types of material can be tested under the tube part of the instrument for their resistance to radiation.
