Space: The Final COTS Frontier

Why You Need to Test What You Fly and Fly What You Test

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we’re headed hundreds of kilometers above the earth and we’re bringing commercial off-the-shelf parts with us! My guest Doug Patterson (Aitech) and I take a closer look at how radiation affects space-destined designs, we examine the difference between space-grade and space-qualified parts, and we also chat about how COTS products are being used in space applications today. Keeping with our starry-eyed theme this week, we also check out why it snows “sunscreen” on a newly discovered “Hot Jupiter” exoplanet called Kepler 13Ab.
