Dawn of the Entrepreneurial Space Age

10/21/2019
More
During the Apollo program era the government drove technology development for space, but now the commercial world does. Space entrepreneurs and traditional aerospace OEMs give people the access to information and services they need. From advanced telecommunications capabilities, including television, internet, telephone and secure communications to high resolution imaging an entire commercial space economy is built in conjunction with governments across the world. What tech will drive future...

An Agile Odyssey

10/21/2019
More
Rapid fielding and prototyping are essential to meet the emerging needs of the space applications market, especially when it comes to launching SmallSats. These capabilities are often enabled by effective Digital Twinning and Agile solutions that fuel modern simulation and training efforts from the design engineers and maintainers to spacecraft pilots. This episode covers how the paradigm shift caused by SmallSats has designers turning to agile processes to aid satellite development.

Open Architectures and Reuse Initiatives in Space Systems

7/25/2019
More
Open standards and open architectures are enabling greater performance and reduced life cycle costs for hardware and software systems in ground, air, and space applications. Embedded open standards – enabled by open architectures – carry a heritage in space, and their footprint is only growing. Open architectures also are enabling reuse of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and software components in military terrestrial applications such as the Future Airborne Capability Environment...

Enabling COTS in Space

7/10/2019
More
The procurement term – (COTS) – has often been considered taboo among space electronics designers, as the commercial part of the phrase connotes low quality and/or low reliability. Yet many COTS solutions are not low-quality at all, and in demand for critical space applications. This demand is forcing traditional high-reliability (high-rel) designers to meet the cost constraints while remaining radiation-tolerant. Space COTS has been discussed and debated for the last 15 years and it’s...

CubeSats/SmallSats/SmartSats—Driving a New Business Model

6/12/2019
More
Small satellites have changed the business model for space technology for everyone from the satellite producers to the designers of the radiation-hardened integrated circuits (ICs) that fuel their sophisticated payload. They’ve shifted the paradigm in terms of costs and time-to-market because they are less expensive to produce and launch, and if one goes down it can easily be replaced by another. The number of annual nano- or microsatellite launches has grown at an average of 40% per year...

Satellite Technology Today—From SmallSats to Launch Vehicles

6/11/2019
More
The first U.S. weather satellite weighed 270 pounds. Its size made most people associate the word “satellite” with either a moon, a sputnik, or a modern rig with rocket motors, solar panels, and antennae. Sixty years later, satellites are more common. They provide high-speed Internet, support global communications and GPS capabilities, and power our smartphones. Modern satellites are more powerful and flexible, do more, cost less, and get to orbit faster. They provide better accuracy, and...
