Capabilities

  • Designs and develops orbital, suborbital and carrier electrical systems and selected flight components such as harnesses, flight fiber optic networks, and special purpose interface hardware.
  • Provides electrical systems leads to Instruments and for Project teams who develop electrical interfaces, performance requirements, functional test procedures, and electrical specifications for in-house space programs or provide oversight and electrical systems expertise to out-of-house space programs.
  • Develops mission critical range instrumentation systems by employing new technology insertion to improve the functions necessary to meet the requirements of the suborbital, low earth-orbit, and balloon flight projects.
  • Provides new payload development, timing, command, radar and telemetry tracking, and Science Data Products
  • Develops project unique electromagnetic compatibility requirements and generates the criteria and test approach needed to insure the electromagnetic compatibility of instrument and spacecraft hardware.
  • Provides Electrical Leads to Science Principal Investigators to support unusual, quick reaction missions or proposal development. Provides Electrical Systems Managers and/or Electrical Systems support to out-of-house programs.
