Research Institution
The purpose of this proposal is to develop a process capable of fabricating radiation hardened (RadHard) packages for commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) microelectronics used in small satellites. The goal is to fabricate a package that mitigates single event effects and reduce total ionizing dose (TID) and dose rate from space radiation. During the Phase I, Triton Systems proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of fabricating RadHard packages around COTS microelectronics. Phase II would build on these results to optimize the process as well as investigate additional materials and microelectronics currently utilized by small satellite electronics suppliers. Additionally, testing in a realistic environment will be completed. Phase III of the project will be to use the demonstrated process and materials for insertion into an Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) program.
