Training Session

NASA’s radiation effects community, with support from the NASA Electronic Parts and Packaging program, collaborated with Texas A&M University academia and Radiation Effects Facility staff to develop a radiation effects training “boot camp,” first held in February 2022, with plans for future annual training. The boot camp was in response to a National Academy study called “Testing at the Speed of Light,” that looked at the available U.S. infrastructure available to provide the types of energy and ions used to do the type of spaceflight testing NASA aims to do and also the people available to do the work. Training included attendees from government, industry and academia.

Knowledge Exchange Two People

For years, Jean-Marie Lauenstein has been the sole Subject Matter Expert in Silicon Carbide Wide Band Gap Power Device Radiation Hardness Assurance, which is critical to the advancement of technology within NASA. Because of this, Lauenstein had to be more forward-thinking when planning her retirement. She provided her three-year retirement notice in 2018, giving both herself and the NASA Electronic Parts and Packaging Program managers enough time to prepare to transfer knowledge and find a reliable replacement.

Ingenuity Helicopter to Take Flight in April

NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter made headlines in April after successfully completing the first powered controlled flight by an aircraft on a planet besides Earth. Ingenuity’s tremendous success demonstrates the continuing evolution of NASA’s Risk Management processes for infusing commercial technologies into space missions. While rightly described as a “high-risk, high-reward” technology demonstration, Ingenuity is completely based on well-reasoned and disciplined engineering analysis and methodical risk identification and mitigation schemes.

GAN-Hero

Gallium Nitride (GaN), a Wide Bandgap (WBG) semiconductor, is emerging as a promising material for electronic components in the aerospace industry. While historically semiconductor devices have been silicon-based, in recent years, devices using WBG materials such as silicon carbide and GaN have matured to a point where their performance and economic value are competitive with, or in some cases, exceed traditional silicon parts.
