Consultation and problem analysis 

  • Analysis of environmental requirements based on orbit and mission lifetime;  ECSS-E-ST-10-04C (fields of particles, fluxes)

  • In-flight dose (TID) end effects calculations based on 3D Mote Carlo modeling; ECSS-E-ST-10-12C -> realistic environmental requirements
  • Relevant electronic components selection and shielding optimization -> lower power, lower mass
  • Planning
    • realistic scheduling 
    • optimization:  faster -> cheaper irradiation

Preparation and design

  • Test plans and detailed test procedures; ESCC 22900, ESCC 25100, MIL-STD-883 m:1019, 1020.1 1021.3
  • Planning with optimization:  faster -> cheaper irradiation
  • Beam requirements: doses/fluences, fluxes, beam shapes, energies
  • Preparation of DUTs for irradiation
  • Electronic equipment selection and design,
  • Supporting electronic equipment selection and design

Testing

  • Total Ionizing Dose (TID); ESCC 22900, MIL-STD-883 m:1019
    • gamma/electron (Paul Scherrer Institut : Co60)
    • proton  (Paul Scherrer Institut: Proton Irradiation Facility)
  • Single Event Effects (SEE); ESCC 25100, MIL-STD-883 m:1020.1 and 1021.3, JESD57A, JESD234
    • proton​ (Paul Scherrer Institut: Proton Irradiation Facility)
    • Heavy Ions (HI)

Reporting

  • According to ECSS and ESCIES recommendations
