After a longer than expected delay (due to record growth in the last 6 months), I am proud to announce that the 2020 CuTS® Catalog is finally ready and available for request on our website!
The TAI team is proud to announce we are delivering several custom Copper (Cabled) Thermal Straps (CuTS®) this week to the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, for ESA's JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE) spacecraft, planned for launch in 2022 and arrival at Jupiter in 2029.
Happy Friday, to all of our Blog, Linkedin and Twitter followers! I thought I would share a great shot of our newest custom cryocooler copper thermal strap (CuTS®), shipping out next week:

EnMAP Copper Thermal Strap Assemblies Shipping Out - More Great Pictures of DLR's Spaceflight Program Straps
Following up on our blog from last week, TAI is now shipping out the EnMAP copper thermal straps, star tracker adapter fittings, and various extension and evaporator plates to OHB and the DLR. This was a terrific program to work on, with extensive spaceflight qualification requirements.
TAI is proud to announce we have concluded testing on the copper thermal straps, adapter rings and evaporator plates being delivered to OHB* for the DLR's EnMAP mission. This set of custom strap assemblies was designed by our team to cool the three star tracker systems mounted on EnMAP, and is our second delivery to the program (in 2015, TAI provided Kayser-Threde with prototype and spaceflight model (FM) Graphite Fiber Thermal Straps for another optical component on the craft).
*Work completed for OHB Systems AG, prime contractor for EnMAP who is under contract to the German Space Agency DLR with funding from the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie) under reference number 50 EP 0801.
TAI is shipping out another order to Janis Research Company today. These Stage 1 Cryocooler Thermal Straps (pictured above), along with another set of smaller straps for the 2nd Stage (not pictured), and a batch of custom cryocooler thermal straps (pictured below), are yet another example of our high quality, and design & fabrication capabilities, and the great work our Design and Manufacturing Teams are doing everyday.
