Key Radiation-to-Electronics (R2E) Challenges for New Space

Invited Talk

To be presented at the 2020/21 CERN Annual R2E annual meeting (Feb. 3,  15:40 → 16:40 Europe/Zurich time)

The growth of New Space has been fueled by drastic launch cost reductions and functionality provided by aggressive and persistent technology scaling.  In this talk, we consider two major challenges to the “New Space” sector: Managing manufacturing variation in COTS devices AND radiation test strategies with limited schedule and budgets.
