SPACE PRODUCTS | Thermal Control


AASC routinely applies thermal control coatings to many of our structures.  These range from very fragile optical solar reflectors (mirrors) to thermal paints to very thin films that are co-cured with composites or secondarily bonded to our structures.

Optical Solar Reflectors (OSRs)

bonding very thin OSRs onto large heat pipe panels

AASC has experience bonding very thin 2" x 2" and 1" x 1" OSRs onto large heat pipe panels utilizing standard RTV adhesives.  A segregated OSR bonding room is utilized for this process.
