Aretha,

I would like to call your attention to an SRM device of which I have recently been apprised.

The rough theory is in the UNGETF database, keyword Sunbugs. An implementation is to be found in the FabNet archives, same keyword. It requires a Fraunhoeffer chemical synthesizer to which I do not have access, but I believe you do.

It might be a viable replacement for the sunshield.

Trust you are well.

cordially,

Luc Fontaine
