PyroFlex™ Thermal Straps used on NASA CubeSat Initiative's HyTI Instrument

Posted by Tyler Link on

TAI's PyroFlex™ thermal strap products (made with pyrolytic graphite film), will be used to cool a revolutionary hyperspectral imaging system developed in a joint effort between NASA JPL, the University of Hawaii's Space Flight Laboratory (HSFL), and the California Institute of Technology, called the Hyperspectral Thermal Imager (HyTI). The instrument is currently scheduled to launch in late 2021, moving our PyroFlex™ products up from TRL 8, to NASA TRL 9, within the next several months (unless previous programs with General Atomics and Lockheed Martin beat NASA to it)!
