TID effects imply that one incident irradiation causes the ionizing of matter and it appears charge in places where it should not. TNID effects are motivated by the displacement of the atoms of the crystalline lattice from their balance sites.
Alter Technology is the coordinated procurement agency for all the electronic components on-board providing engineering, testing and logistics services helping to the The European Space Agency (ESA) in the new mission with the PLAnetary Transits and Oscillations of stars (PLATO); which has the goal to detect terrestrial exoplanets in the habitable zone of solar-type stars and characterizing their bulk properties from 2024 onwardsplato.
As the demand and use of non-hermetic and plastic-encapsulated microcircuits for space have increased, the scope of what future missions are capable of has also widened. This activity feeds into other business within ATG with regards to New Space and COTS devices.
Propose a DD test standard
• Should be available by the end of the year after ESA and Components
Technology Board (CTB)/Radiation Working group (RWG) comments
• Goal of this presentation
⇒ Not a draft of the future guidelines, but:
• Remind the physical processes responsible of the displacement damages
• Remind the electrical effects
• List the main parameters that should be taken into account
The Euclid spacecraft will carry a payload module with a 1.2m-diameter telescope and two state-of-the art scientific instruments: a visible-light camera and a near-infrared camera/spectrometer. Image Credit: Airbus Defence & Space.
Solar Orbiter will be used to examine how the Sun creates and controls the heliosphere, the vast bubble of charged particles blown by the solar wind into the interstellar medium. The spacecraft will combine in situ and remote sensing observations to gain new information about the solar wind, the heliospheric magnetic field, solar energetic particles, transient interplanetary disturbances and the Sun’s magnetic field.
