The use of Cubesats is growing. This is mainly due to the need for low-cost communications satellites, new business evolving around earth observation services, and so on. These drive the need for new product solutions for smaller, lighter, and lower cost spacecraft for which DLA’s radiation hardness assured space-grade parts are often an overkill.
Furthermore, there is a continuing need to infuse new technology into the QML system. This talk will describe the approaches taken to address these issues and develop standard parts for new missions.
