|Summary||Physical and mechanical properties of polymer composite materials on the basis of epoxy binders being used in aircraft and space technics and subjected to the low Earth orbit space environment influence have been investigated by the DMA method. New spectrometric approach was suggested for processing of dependences of the dynamic shear modulus on the temperature, in particular, numerical derivation and decomposition of first derivative curves into Gauss distribution. To raise the reliability of determination of fine gradient effects of binder properties across the thickness of the laminates, computer analysis of DMA data according to the spectrometric principles was performed, conclusions about stability of the materials in the structure of micrometeor protection of "Mir" orbital complex were made.
