    SDC Delivers Production Struts

    SDC Delivers Production Struts


    San Diego, CA, May 24, 2013 - San Diego Composites, Inc. (SDC) delivered another ship set of Composite Struts to MOOG - ISP. Throughout the program, SDC developed a lightweight high stiffness composite strut with aluminum end caps to serve as the support structure for a major European satellite constellation propulsion system. To date, SDC has delivered 26 ship sets of flight hardware for a total of 208 struts. In the program's early stages, SDC developed design, production fabrication process, and conducted and passed qualification testing. SDC also developed a novel adhesive injection method for bonding the end caps to the composite tubes. SDC leveraged their unique experience with durability and high rate production of small diameter composite tubes with aerospace quality to fabricate lightweight thin walled tubes for the high stiffness application.
