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