VAP® 3D ready-mades developed and produced by Trans-Textil together with the Center for Lightweight Production at the German Aerospace Centre (DLR-ZLP) in Augsburg have again enabled the two partners to demonstrate the potential of prefabricated material kits adapted to component form. As part of the "Optimized vacuum bagging for CFRP rocket booster cases" project, DLR and Trans-Textil recently implemented the concept of instant-use multifunctional textile auxiliary packs in the case of a full-scale final-stage booster demonstrator measuring 3.4 metres in diameter and 6 metres in length for the Ariane 6 launcher.

VAP® technology for European satellite mission

(28 August 2019)

As of 2021, the MetOp Second Generation A Satellite Mission will be measuring trace gases, ozone and aerosol in the earth's atmosphere, thus contributing to continuous air quality monitoring in particular. In the context of the European Copernicus Programme, the satellite mission will be expanding our planet's extensive climate records in this way. Under contract to the European Space Agency, Airbus Defence & Space GmbH develops and produces carbon fibre-reinforced components for the Sentinel 5 instrument involved, using Trans-Textile's aerospace-qualified VAP® membrane system in the process. VAP® technology is thus making a substantial contribution to consistent and high-precision production of the ultralight components.
