“The demand for COTS devices is dramatically increasing for space applications. Nevertheless, CNES has been using COTS on many satellites for the past two decades as it designed the Myriad generic platform.
It recently defined a new Quality assurance standard for lighter requirements for demonstrators and nanosatellites.
CNES continues to do research to improve its knowledge of COTS reliability. For example, many parts are sensitive to radiation effects and in particular, to single event latch-up that could affect the overall reliability of devices. An aging test campaign has been performed on prior irradiated and not irradiated devices to analyze the presence of synergic effects.
Results will be exposed and discussed during the conference.”
