SUB-ASSEMBLIES

Designed by PSC, accessories provide valuable mission and integration functionality. They support a wide array of in-flight and ground-test applications. Accessories are a valuable tool whenever signal transfer is required across low-force interfaces.

All Accessories are NASA Technology Readiness Level 9 (TRL-9). They can be delivered installed on a Lightband or separately to allow future installation by the user.
