TeXtreme® on Mars

April 19, 2021, NASA made history by flying a powered, man-controlled helicopter on another planet.

TeXtreme Fabrics are used in several parts of the Ingenuity helicopter – solar panel substrate, the box at the bottom and the rotor blades. The ultra-light materials allowed extreme weight reduction without compromising stiffness or robustness.
