When electrical power or signals must be passed across a rotating interface, a slip ring (sliding electrical contact) or twist capsule (specialized flexible harness) is required. In high-reliability applications, a great deal of nuance is involved in the design of these interfaces. Honeybee has decades of experience in the design and assembly of slip rings and twist capsules for spaceflight.
Having supplied electrical transfer subsystems for dozens of flight programs, we are intimately familiar with the nuances of design and assembly that enable low drag torque, high reliability, long lifetime, and volume efficiency. We have mature, high-TRL systems ready for integration, and also provide custom solutions for specific customer applications.
