Roundtable leader: Jon Shick, Staff Systems Engineer, Radiation Effects Engineering, Honeywell

Space electronics have experienced ground-breaking developments in the past decade. Due to chips becoming smaller and smaller, capabilities have opened p for space electronics. Radiation-hardened by design remains a major point of discussion as we move from customized and expensive space components to commercial off the shelf components.

In this 360 Session, we will discuss rad-hard by design developments and its applications in the space industry:

  • The importance of rad-hard by design: brief history and future outlook
  • Cost vs performance
  • Making an electrical engineers’ life easier: why rad-hard by design can expand the number of component offerings to electrical engineers

 



Please note: sessions are limited to 10 participants and will be available on a first come first served basis. You will be notified if your registration was successful.

Roundtable leader: Jeff Viel, Chief Electrical Engineer, NTS

As with many areas in the space system manufacturing chain, production lead times need to be reduced in order to answer customer demand. New ways of testing could speed up this process – one of them being simulation testing. There are, however, still some hurdles regarding the implementation of this type of testing. 

In this 360 Session, Jeff Viel, Chief Electrical Engineer at NTS, invites you to join in on the discussion of simulation testing, and will highlight the following topics with participants:

  • The implementation of software in the testing industry
  • Answering the need to decrease production times: how can testing help?
  • The trust gap between test engineers and data analytics: how do we know results are accurate? How to find the root cause when a problem appears?
  • Combining analytical design review with risk mitigation prototype testing can be the most effective way to ensure first pass product compliance.

 

Please note: sessions are limited to 10 participants and will be available on a first come first served basis. You will be notified if your registration was successful.

Roundtable leader: Rodney Rusk, Industry 4.0 leader at Bosch Rexroth Corporation

Industry 4.0 is, by now, a buzz word you can find in many manufacturing papers and magazines. The umbrella term stands for a development within manufacturing where automation and data is critical to optimize future engineering. Examples of industry 4.0 technologies include the Internet of Things, cloud and cognitive computing and additive manufacturing among many others.

In this roundtable discussion, Rodney Rusk, Industry 4.0 leader at Bosch Rexroth Corporation, will discuss the following points with participants: 

• How to implement new technologies into a manufacturing chains to maximize implementation?
• The bottlenecks in manufacturing and how new technologies can help release these issues
• How to implement new technologies into a manufacturing chains that work perfectly?
• Best practices: how can lessons from other industries help l industry 4.0 technologies make a difference in the space industry?

 

Please note: sessions are limited to 10 participants and will be available on a first come first served basis. You will be notified if your registration was successful.
