Abstract
The proposed solid-state ceramic modules will provide very (strategic) rad hard solution for MILSATCOM EPC/PMAD systems. Ceramic power management offer enormous benefits to space-based PMAD systems. We are proposing to transition this new technology all the way through to demonstrated rad hard capable, fully integrated Multi-chip Module packages that includes addressing both risk reduction and supplier stability through a disciplined Advanced Component Development and Prototypes (ACD&P) program leading to realization of affordable and reliable manufacture of high voltage transform/high power handling solid-state power that would serve as the core of a rad hard power distribution system (e.g. radiation MDA HAENS) that is verified at hardware level with a simple (non rad hard) prototype implementation that can be rapidly matured as to enable Technology Readiness Assessment by USAF Space and Missile Systems Center for potential LEO/MEO/GEO military and commercial satellites.
