Space Flight Assemblies Require a Unique understanding
Space flight assemblies require a unique understanding of materials and operating conditions. Our experience includes use of materials such as Titanium, Fiberglass, and Carbon Fiber. Our success lies in our ability to attach fittings onto specialized wires and cables with calculated accuracy, precision, and reliability to achieve the maximum tensile strength and exact tolerances from your assemblies.
Flight Control Cable Assemblies – Expertise in high tension, tight tolerance assembly
Our expertise in high tension, tight tolerance assembly was employed to build the 60-meter mast shown to the right used in the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM). It flew on the Space Shuttle Endeavor in February of 2000, and generated high-resolution topographic maps of Earth.
Strand Products is one of only a select few Department of Defense QML-6117 certified manufactures of aircraft wire rope assemblies. We adhere to Military standards for all materials, assembly procedures, testing, swaging, cleaning, and inspections including:
