Product Announcement from DSTI - Dynamic Sealing Technologies, Inc.
NASA's final mission of space shuttle Atlantis transported a unique robotic satellite refueling system that integrates specialized rotary unions engineered by DSTI.
In 2010, when the space agency needed a fluid transfer solution for an in-orbital refueling system, DSTI proposed a design for a compact rotary union that met the challenge.
With the need for an exceptionally small design, the final solution resulted in specialized components and seals suitable for a microgravity environment featuring a smooth-bore custom O-ring interface.
After months of vibration and thermal testing, the refueling system team was excited to report the performance success they wanted, adding another critical project to the hundreds of unique challenges DSTI has taken on.
Retiring NASA's 30-year space shuttle program in July, this final mission aims to reduce risks and lay the foundation for future robotic servicing for extending the life of satellites orbiting Earth.
