Additional aerospace experience

EEC developed and manufactured ultra-high temperature magnets which have been successfully applied in space travel. NASA’s Deep Space 1 mission, the first in a series of deep-space and Earth-orbiting missions conducted under the New Millennium Program, tested 12 advanced, high-risk technologies in space. The test included an ion-propulsion engine manufactured by Hughes Electron Dynamics using EEC’s high temperature magnets. In an extremely successful extended mission, Deep Space 1 encountered the comet Borrelly and returned the best images and scientific data ever from a comet.
