For over 60 years, we have been involved with leaders in the aerospace industry, like NASA, designing and testing lubricants for space applications. Our latest partnership was on next generation geostationary weather satellites, called the GOES-R series. According to the Goes-R Website affiliated with NASA and the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), “The satellites will provide advanced imaging with increased spatial resolution and faster coverage for more accurate forecasts, real-time mapping of lightning activity, and improved monitoring of solar activity.”  

Nye was involved in lubricating both the reaction wheels and solar array drives within the GOES-16, launched in November 2016. The solar array drives are responsible for positioning the solar panels in order to harvest sun light that can be turned into energy, while the reaction wheels are the control gyros for satellites, providing attitude control. Both satellite mechanisms are lubricated with Pennzane™-based lubricants, ensuring long life of these components.
