I am thrilled to announce TAI just completed another set of Graphite Fiber Thermal Straps (GFTS®), destined for NASA's Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer (IXPE) Satellite, scheduled for launch in November 2020.
TAI's News & Blog
TAI's News Page provides updates on important aerospace, commercial, and research programs using our thermal strap products, and covers other helpful topics including: how to draft strap specifications and SOW's, helping you through the strap design and ordering processes, and notices regarding our new thermal strap catalogs, products and offerings. Come back for more updates on successful customer programs, and news & pictures from TAI and our customers.
I thought I would share some pictures from one of our Graphite Fiber Thermal Strap (GFTS®) orders that are shipping out today (this is a record year for our GFTS® product line, and even with the success of our X-Series® PGS and Graphene Thermal Straps / Links line, we are continuing to see growth in our GFTS® sales and programs, and are adding to new customers this year from Spain, to Italy, the United States, Germany, and more).

I just wanted to share this pic of the next set of FM GFTS®/TEC hybrid thermal straps out for NASA's IXPE Mission:
