NewSpace is an approach that focuses on lowering the barriers to entry to space industry, by providing cheaper access to space… One of the major characteristics of the NewSpace era is the fundamental shift from an industry which was heavily dependent on government agencies to a more agile and an independent private sector that relies on innovation, working with much smaller budgets than the early space industry.
Electrical and materials performance of EEE components and Electro-optical components are critical in some planetary missions. Cryogenic Temperatures and pressure conditions are just an example of these extreme environmental conditions that can be face the components
Product durability and accelerated life cycle testing are all methods of determining the reliability of a product before release. By subjecting the capacitor to elevated conditions far beyond its normal operational ranges, we seek to discover any defects or points of failure to better inform customers about the limitations of the unit.
The use of radiation tools is justified as a complement of radiation test to verify and optimize the radiation hardness assurance process in the new space market and reduce some cost without a significant loss of the confidence level.
The reliability of the components used in a spacecraft is a determinating factor for their operation and performance throughout the mission life.
Only the most advanced techniques are able to provide the depth and accuracy in the inspections required by current state of the art microelectronics.
