In these forbidding environments, failure is not an option. Following are ways SOURIAU PA&E is advancing technology for space applications.
Weight Reduction — Fusing lightweight aluminum and titanium with an explosive-bonding transition allows us to integrate more robust and reliable feedthrus and connectors into a lighter weight package.
Maximizing Thermal Conductivity — We use high-efficiency thermal transfer technology in our integrated packaging. One example of this is our titanium composite housings.
Hermetic Sealing Systems — Kryoflex®, a proprietary polycrystalline ceramic sealing technology, is used to produce extremely rugged and reliable hermetic connectors, feedthrus, and integrated electronic packaging.
Precision Laser Welding — We laser weld our feedthrus and connectors into integrated packages for higher integrity, reliability, and rework-ability than conventional soldered electronic packaging.
