Bengaluru, May 25, 2016: Avasarala Technologies Ltd, head quartered in Bengaluru, today announced handing over 3000th Heat Pipe manufactured in Avasarala’s facility in Bommasandra to Padma Shri Dr. M. Annadurai, Director, ISRO Satellite Centre to commemoratethe long-standing relationship with ISRO.
Heat Pipes are very importantand critical components for Aerospace Applications for the spacecraft cooling and temperature stabilization due to their low weight penalty, zero maintenance, and reliability. Maintaining thermal uniformity is an importanttask with respect to orbiting satellites under adverse solar heating.
M.D & CEO T.T.Mani- Avasarala Technologies said “Today, Avasarala is one of the leading manufacturers of specialized and critical systems and components to Strategic Sectors under Make in India Program and we are extremely happy to receive
Dr. Annadurai to our facility and equally honoured to hand over our 3000th Heat Pipe to him endorsing our longstanding association with Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO)”.
