The anticipated exceptional radiation hardness, temperature intensity, and performance parameters of the diamond-based vacuum differential amplifiers make them well suited to all space-based applications. Scientic market research has found a need for high power amplifiers in satellite operations for both NASA and DOD applications. Low to no impedance high power switching is required in many research areas within NASA, such as electrostatic analyzers (ESA) used in Heliophysics experiments.
Previous experience and research has demonstrated a requirement for extreme temperature and radiation hardened amplifiers for defense and space applications. Scientic believes multiple programs run by the Air Force Research laboratory and the Air Force Space and Missile Center would benefit from technology utilizing ND-VFEDA devices.
