The Lynx wing strakes are critical structural components that attach the Lynx fuselage to the wings and hold kerosene fuel, attachment points for the main landing gear, and bays for the vehicle’s reaction control thrusters.

The strakes have been designed by XCOR to rigorous design standards that will enable a craft to perform tens of thousands of flights to and from suborbital altitudes exceeding 100 kilometers. The strake has undergone an iterative design process by XCOR engineers and outside independent third party structural and thermal analysis experts from Quartus Engineering in San Diego.

FiberDyne was selected after a thorough competitive selection process that emphasized past experience, ability to manufacture complex carbon fiber structures used in safety critical pressurized applications, schedule and value. FiberDyne is teamed with tool maker Sierra Technical Services of Mojave, California.
