The impacts created by radiation cause vulnerabilities in small satellites and their larger, traditional counterparts. While moving to commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components and systems may reduce direct costs and procurement lead times, it undermines many cost-reduction strategies used for conventional radiation hardness assurance (RHA). Limited resources are accompanied by a lack of radiation testing and analysis, which can pose significant risks—or worse, be neglected altogether. As mission objectives grow, and become reliant on advanced technologies operating for longer and in harsher environments, requirements need to reflect the changing scope without hindering developers that provide new capabilities. This webinar will describe lessons learned that address these issues and lead to mission success.
