Who we are
Aerothreads is Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) and SBA certified HUBZone Small Business that specializes in the design, fabrication and installation of Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI) blankets. Our job is to design and fabricate custom MLI blankets that protect spacecraft hardware from the harsh environment of space. We are made up of makers, artists and engineers, most of whom have a background in textiles, fibers, fashion, or costume design. We believe that our success is attributed to the creativity and skill of our team members who bring their experience into the space industry.

What we do
Provided with customer CAD drawings or hardware, we create our templates by draping or drafting. Once theses templates are checked for fit and function, they are used to fabricate MLI blankets into 3D shapes. These MLI blankets undergo many levels of testing to ensure that they satisfy mission requirements. Upon completion of testing we install the blankets onto the space ready hardware. We take pride in our emphasis on quality and attention to detail as every stitch, fold and tape is mission critical.

What we need
As a Thermal Blanket Intern, you will learn the basics of MLI blanket design, fabrication, and installation. Innovation and craftsmanship are the core of our business and something we look for in our team. Individuals who have strong patterning skills, like to work in teams and solve unique problems are well suited for this position.
