Abstract

The Star Tracker from ØRSTED•DTU is built by using COTS components (Commercial-Off-The-Shelf) and due to no radiation data exists on COTS components, the EEE components are tested for Radiation effects. The components, which are tested is the one from the same lot, which is going to be used for the flight equipment, if they pass the radiation test. The next generation of Star Tracker are using 3-volt technology and this document describes how the COTS components are upscreened for space and how the instrument is qualified for space. The components are TID irradiated and are irradiated until functional failure; a reliability measure can then be attained even for a small sample size.
