Space Satellites

Minco engineers understand the motion principles of satellites as well as the potential hazards that occur in such a dynamic place as space. We have been involved with over 60 space programs throughout the world and have produced over 20,000 space heaters to date. Our thermal, flex circuit and sensor and instrumentation, and integrated custom designs can be found in technology globally that manages and protects satellites and their subsystems.

We are the only supplier certified by both NASA and ESA and are working with NASA to rewrite its S311 Heater Specification, which Minco initiated and co-authored. Space applications designed by Minco engineers offer many advantages including higher watt density for smaller heater footprint, smaller heaters that equal small surface fit and weight savings, more robust packaging for high maximum temperatures, and better radiation resistance for protection from sun.
