Dear Larry Saint and the TMC Team:
On behalf of the Advanced Manufacturing Demonstration Engine (AMDE) Team, we appreciate you and your team on the efforts and sincerity in successfully providing precision cleaning services for all of our engine components and facility hardware.
The picture presented shows the latest testing of our AMDE that MSFC has been developing for the past 3 years. The engine is built using additive manufacturing technique and is the first of its kind. The engine uses liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen and produces 35,000 lbf of thrust. Nearly all of the hardware shown in this picture was processed and cleaned by your team at TMC. The success of this test series is a testament to the care and expertise that your team provides in every piece that you clean.
We sincerely appreciate your role in the success and hope you will keep up the good work in the future.
Thank you for giving this team your best.
Jason B. Turpin
