BAE Systems' high-reliability, radiation-hardened space electronics, space-resilient mission payloads, and secure ground solutions ensure operational excellence and mission assurance for a variety of U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), national security, civil, and commercial/private space missions. And we are the "go to" choice for limiting low-orbit risk when plans call for landing on a distant planet or moon.
Today, BAE Systems has over 1,000 computers on more than 300 satellites, and our space computers have logged more than 10,000 years of flight time without a failure. We are committed to delivering space resiliency and innovation in a range of new solutions for the evolving challenges faced in today’s – and tomorrow’s – active, contested space environment. BAE Systems combines a history of orbital expertise with our next generation ground resiliency and data analytics solutions to keep assets safe and performing effectively in space.
Radiation-hardened electronics at the component, card, and unit levels specifically designed for high-reliability, long-term mission lifetime performance in the space radiation environment. Our large portfolio of trusted, rad hard, space resiliency electronics are proven to continue working without failure both in high radiation and in the extreme temperature ranges of space, including:
Radiation-hardened application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) technologies, libraries, and services that provide a complete solution for developing small footprint, system-on-chip products to enable processing for spacecraft, space vehicles, satellites, space missions, and more. Our ASICs services include:
Services for radiation-hardened products including circuit card design and assembly, application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) engineering design, custom circuit design and layout, radiation assurance services, analytical services and testing, space materials management, and more.
BAE Systems is a DoD Category 1A Trusted Supplier, and has received numerous accreditations for our radiation-hardened devices, including classified handling.
Available now, including for export
Our radiation-hardened electronics, ASICs chips, and services for rad hard products are available to U.S. space agencies, military branches, and intelligence agencies, as well as select private spaceflight companies and to allied nations for space exploration and space-based commercial services.
