AWC Helps in the Advancement of Space Exploration!

AWC wire goes to use in tons of technological industries including the space industry.

An AWC customer is building a replacement for a shuttle.  They are working on the solid rocket boosters, also known as SRB’s.  SRB’s provide the main thrust to lift the space shuttle off the pad.  The AWC customer has a prototype they are going to test in the near future.  Their plan is to take an SRB and thrust it out the back of a C-5A.  They want to monitor the parachute deployment.  Here’s where Allied Wire comes into the picture – our wire is in the sensors for the test!
