As the cost to launch objects into space continues to fall, space has become far more accessible. No longer are the days where large government agencies or defense contractors are the only entities who have the means to put something into orbit.
Today, small countries’ space agencies, universities, researchers, and smaller companies now have access to space. In addition, larger companies and space agencies can easily afford to launch arrays of thousands of smaller “cube satellites” into orbit. As the designs of these modern space technologies are being developed, several key factors need to be considered when selecting critical electronic components.
Capacitors play a major role in countless critical systems including propulsion, power management, communications, RADAR, LIDAR, filtering, and many more. The way capacitors are specified for use in space is very different than was done as recently as 10 years ago. This webinar will cover the important design criteria for any space application, from large high-profile missions to smaller cost sensitive projects.
Key Learning Objectives:
- Understanding space level screening and qualification (NASA INST-002)
- Understanding what makes a capacitor suitable for space
- Different types of space grade capacitors to choose from
