...It sure has been busy at TAI this year--and only getting busier as we approach 2019. In another first, MIT Lincoln Laboratory procured sets of our standard P5-506 and G5-502 Copper and Graphite Fiber Thermal Straps (CuTS® & GFTS®), for an evaluation program to determine the best strap types for future spaceflight programs.
TAI provided stiffness and conductance testing for both the GFTS® and CuTS® models, and will also be providing our CuFS™ and X-Series® PGS-based thermal straps early next year, in a follow-on program.

We are looking forward to working with MITLL again soon, and providing them with the industry's highest quality, most affordable thermal straps!
