Flight Systems

Frequently payloads and systems for use in space can very quickly become driven by unique requirements leading to expensive solutions. Today in many areas Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) equipment developed for rugged terrestrial applications is suitable, or can, with careful modification, be made suitable for use in space.

This approach results in development cost savings, shorter development times and more rapid placement on orbit, all of which enormously increases cost effectiveness while still meeting dependability safety and qualification requirements.
