There are many NASA uses for the proposed technology. It can be applied to emerging Kilopower, Nuclear Electric Power, Surface Power, and Radioisotope Power missions. Although we will focus on Brayton systems, our results will be broadly applicable to Stirling systems as well. Additionally, there is an ever present need for radiation hardened electronics to support all space missions and payloads. In particular, extreme radiation tolerance is important for environments with high background radiation, such as those found in the Jovian orbital system.
Our radiation hardened technology is also ideal for many non NASA applications. For example, military and commercial satellites for surveillance and communication all require radiation hardened electronics. Power systems for nuclear submarines and surface vessels could also benefit from our work. Creare would also like to strengthen its presence providing equipment for particle accelerators that support high energy physics experiments, which also require radiation hardened features.
