You need thermal control systems that roll up into launch configuration at a pace traditional thermal technologies cannot provide.
ADAPTABLE THERMAL CONTROL
A novel & transformative thermal design philosophy made possible by our smart thermal tapes ("ASTRID"). ASTRID grants thermal and systems engineer the flexibility to close design trades at later stages. A thermal architecture designed and built around ASTRID can help your satellite bus accommodate various missions, operational scenarios, and payloads without much rework.
Features & Benefits
Mass and power-savings
Less hours on thermal modeling
Tune thermal balance in real time
Mitigate thermal design errors at any stage
Optimize thermal & power performances on-orbit
Address unanticipated thermal challenges, scenarios, or requirements change
Minimize hardware re-configuration & re-verification on ground
Lower thermal incompatibility risks during docking, repair and refueling missions
ASTRID speeds up thermal development process, providing a dynamic solution that eliminates time and money wasted on thermal redesign and retest.
A S T R I D
A high performance, customizable, and thin electronic film that transforms surfaces on satellites into programmable & thermally-responsive elements.
Easily installable like Kapton® tapes.
❖ Structural panels
❖ Battery box
❖ Docking ports
NEXT-GEN THERMAL MANAGEMENT
Multi-Mission Solution for Multi-Orbit Satellite Platforms
We can help standard satellite bus manufacturers achieve rapid designs & builds. With ASTRID, your thermal architecture can roll up into configurations quickly and effectively to satisfy changing mission needs, whether on ground or on orbit.
