As the space business rapidly evolves to accommodate a lower cost model of development and operation via concepts such as commercial space and small spacecraft (e.g., CubeSats and swarms), traditional EEE parts screening and qualification methods are being scrutinized under a risk-reward trade space. We are now faced with two primary themes: (1) the movement from complete risk aversion EEE parts methods to managing and/or accepting risk via alternate approaches; and, (2) using emerging assurance methods to reduce overdesign, such as model-based mission assurance (MBMA) and other Small Mission concepts. While these topics are primarily geared towards aerospace, there is significant overlap and mutual benefit for harsh environment ground-based applications.

Coffee will be served before the seminar.

Organisers: Ruben Garcia Alia (EN-STI & R2E), Markus Brugger (EN-EA), Enrico Chesta (IPT-KT).
