Exxelia is onboard F-18
Exxelia is proud to equip the F-18; the fighter jet that is part of the "cast" of Joseph Kosinski's film Top Gun Maverick (Paramount Pictures). The F-18 is the second most used fighter aircraft in the world in 2012. Several F/A-18s are seen in the film. Model replacing the Grumman F-14 Tomcat of the US Navy featured in Top Gun, released in 1986. Inside, we find our 820P film capacitors as well as MIL-PRF-83421/6 film capacitors.
Exxelia equips the Turkish satellite IMECE with tantalum and ceramic capacitors
IMECE is a technological feat that pushes the boundaries of high-resolution imaging. Exxelia is proud to play an essential role in this space adventure by providing quality components to ensure proper operation. IMECE is an earth observation satellite designed and developed by TÜBİTAK Space Technologies Research Institute (TÜBİTAK UZAY) and produced in Türkiye to provide high-resolution imagery. The spacecraft has a mass of 800 kg (1,800 lb) and it will serve at 680 km (420 mi) on a sun-synchronous geocentric orbit. The Satellite, projected for a mission duration of five years, has 0.99m image resolution of Panchromatic (PAN). The satellite has been launched on 15 April 2023 on a SpaceX's Falcon 9 Block 5 rocket as part of the Transporter-7 ridershare mission. Exxelia equips the satellite with PM series capacitors that are used in the satellite's Power Distribution Unit (PDU). Exxelia's PM series capacitors are renowned for their reliability, performance, and durability, making them ideal for space applications. Exxelia also supplies tantalum capacitors and ceramic capacitors for the payloads of the IMECE Satellite. These components are designed to withstand the extreme conditions of space and ensure the proper operation of scientific instruments and equipment on board the satellite. We look forward to the discoveries and data that the IMECE Satellite will provide during its five-year mission. The future of space exploration looks promising, and Exxelia will continue to play an active role in this exciting adventure.
