Radiation-hardened electronics

Space Systems


BAE Systems offers a host of services including circuit card design and assembly, application specific integrated circuits (ASIC) and field programmable gate arrays(FPGA) design, custom circuit design and layout, failure analysis and destructive physical analysis, among other services.

Circuit card assembly

Flexible circuit card assembly services from component procurement and preparation through assembly, testing, inspection, and conformal coating, qualified to J-STD-001 Class 3, IPC-610 Class 3, NASA-STD-8739.3 and other customer standards. Coupled with our advanced space material management system, we track material availability, determine and execute required material screening based on mission requirements, and demonstrate traceability and compliance through product delivery.

Engineering design

BAE Systems' integrated design team offers mission design services at any stage, from early architecture and algorithm planning and specifications to final testing and qualification -- leveraging a proven heritage of delivering high-quality, radiation-hardened and power efficient solutions at the box, circuit card, ASIC, and FPGA levels.

Component assembly, test and screening

BAE Systems offers a broad array of packaging and associated testing and mil-screening services, routinely handling wire-bond and flipchip, hermetic and non-hermetic, ceramic and plastic, monolithic and stacked Multi-chip module (MCM), low or high pin count options. Column Grid Array package assembly and ball grid array (BGA) to column conversion services are available.

Radiation assurance services

BAE Systems offers comprehensive radiation effects testing and assessments of memory, logic, and analog devices for multiple threat environments. Readily deployable mixed-signal test capabilities are available with testing at national labs and universities.

Analytical services

BAE Systems offers state of the art analytical services that include cross-sectional analysis, Electrostatic discharge (ESD) testing, photoemission and fault localization, destructive physical analysis, and prohibited materials analysis and counterfeit inspections.

Space Material Management

BAE Systems has a long history of delivering reliable space products. The company's highly qualified engineers are experienced in determining material screening needs based on mission requirements and have developed a customized material tracking system, called DataView, to track material availability and screening status and store data to demonstrate traceability and compliance. The company's material management expertise include: determining required material screening, executing required material screening, guaranteeing material quality, data review, and leveraging relationships with qualified suppliers.
