Constellium’s AIRWARE® aerospace technology provides low-density alloys that are stiffer and stronger, offering excellent mechanical properties to ensure high-performance during the demanding launch and landing phases of spacecrafts. At the same time, the lower density facilitates the ascent of spacecrafts to outer space.
AIRWARE® contributed to a successful first exploration Flight Test (EFT-1) case of NASA’s Orion Spacecraft built by Lockheed-Martin.
Together with AIRWARE® 2050, Constellium’s specific aerospace Al 2219-T87 will also feature in the main primary structure of Exploration Mission 1 (EM-1). EM1 will be the Orion’s second planned uncrewed test flight.
