Radiation testing of COTS data-acquisition electronics for space applications

David Chamberlain Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions

Thanks to its proven reliability, cost-effectiveness and size, weight, and power (SWaP) optimization, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment is becoming increasingly attractive to system designers for use in space applications. As COTS equipment extends into mission-critical functions, the risks to the COTS electronics posed by space radiation need to be understood and mitigated.

Advances in MIL-D-38999L connectors lead to smaller, lighter, and greater bandwidth

Ken Braund Meritec

The military circular connectors have been around since the beginning of time, or so it seems. They were developed in the 1930s for Army and Navy severe applications. The "AN" Series of Circular connectors, as they were known, originated in the 1930s as a dependable, rugged military electrical connector that has evolved into the 38999 electrical interconnect system today that now has many more demands on it than simple point-to-point electrical connections. It has been…
