Andrews Space (Andrews) has announced they have signed an exclusive agreement with Sinclair Interplanetary (Sinclair) of Toronto, Canada to begin selling and manufacturing Sinclair's highly popular torque rods. Under the agreement, Andrews will take over manufacturing the Sinclair TQ-15 and TQ-40 torque rod products and their variants, which are ideal for spacecraft weighing between 30 and 180 kg.

"Sinclair Interplanetary has long been known as a preeminent supplier of high-performance aerospace products for the small satellite market," said Jason Andrews, President and CEO of Andrews Space.

"We are excited to be working with Doug and his team to expand the manufacturing base of these products."

"We have delivered more than 70 flight torque rods in the past 5 years," said Doug Sinclair, owner of Sinclair Interplanetary.

"By transferring their manufacture to Andrews, we can focus our efforts on the development of our next generation reaction wheel and star tracker products."

Following a technology transfer between the two companies, Andrews Space will begin manufacturing the torque rods and offer them for sale as part of their Products portfolio.

All Andrews Products are built domestically in the United States using Andrews' AS9100C certified quality procedures for spaceflight hardware.

"We look forward to supporting Sinclair's existing customers as well as growing the US and overseas market footprint for these products," said Melissa Wuerl, head of New Business for Andrews Space.

"We expect that US manufactured torque rods will be available for delivery starting mid-2013."
