composite based structures employed for
satellites and space vehicles. Carbon fiber
based composites are manufactured at our
in-house filament winding facility. The composite
structures are fabricated at concerns
composite factory in Fredericia, Denmark.
The fabrication processes are filament winding,
hand lay-up and adhesive bonding and
the finished products are extremely consistent
within narrow mechanical and thermal
ESA ECSS standards based FSDS Space
quality control system is ISO 9001 certified.
The quality control system encompass
companies immense in-house test facilities
as: ultrasonic screening, mechanical tests,
environmental tests, high velocity strain test
(Split-Hopkinson) , Izod impact test, microstructure
void test etc. The dimensional tolerances
are inspected by means of electronic
3D measuring equipment.
FSDS Space has references with a wide
range of space missions, some of them being:
Ariane 5, The James Web Space Telescope,
