The Problem

You need thermal control systems that roll up into launch configuration at a pace traditional thermal technologies cannot provide.

SOFTWARE DEFINABLE THERMAL CONTROL

Our adaptable thermal tape technology ("ASTRID") offers dynamic software programmability. This capability enables satellite manufacturers to quickly configure their thermal control systems to various payloads and on-orbit scenarios. Having ASTRID in system architecture grants thermal systems engineers the flexibility to close design trades at later stages and pre-integrate thermal hardware before the arrival of customer's payload.

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 redesign, re-procurement &  re-verification on ground

  • Lower thermal incompatibility risks during docking, repair and refueling missions

The Solution

ASTRID speeds up thermal development cycle, providing a dynamic solution that eliminates time and money wasted on thermal redesign and re-procurement.
