Structural Panels

Northrop Grumman has a proven development approach to design-to-performance or build-to- print structural panels for various government, civil and commercial spacecraft customers. These structural panels, including optical solar reflectors, are made using graphite-epoxy/honeycomb.

The honeycomb panels have embedded heat pipes, structural and thermal analyses, material selection, panel consolidation, precision machining, panel inserts, reinforcement for locally concentrated loading, application of optical coatings, contamination control, ultrasonic and radiographic testing, thermal performance and cycling testing, static load, vibration, and acoustic testing. This panel design is one of many designed to fist customer's needs.

With more than 20 years of experience designing and manufacturing composite flight hardware, we have a range of products and design capabilities suited to meet customer-specific needs.
