Designed for your mission-critical space research
Space is undoubtedly a challenging environment for any electronic component. The success of any mission depends upon the reliability of the discrete components that must be able to operate in extreme cold, in vacuum, and under intense radiation—not to mention the ability to survive the shock, vibration, and acceleration of launch. Failure of a single component can result in the failure of an entire mission.
Lake Shore offers a rich history of working with scientists and engineers at a number of aerospace institutions and agencies, including NASA, supplying thermometry and other technology that offer long-term stability and performance over the duration of a mission. These include hundreds of flight-qualified sensors for the NASA James Webb Space Telescope and sensors for the Mars Curiosity rover.
