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.Read More
