Space, once the realm of science fiction, is now a frontier of reality through relentless technological advancement. Since the dawn of the space race, overcoming the harsh conditions of space has been paramount. BAE Systems has played a pivotal role in this evolution, extending the operational lifespans of electronic systems in missions from Apollo 11 to Mars rovers. Central to this success is radiation-hardened (rad-hard) technology, designed to withstand extreme conditions that would otherwise cripple electronics.

BAE Systems’ RAD750® and RAD5545® single-board computers exemplify this durability, powering over 100 satellites. As we push the boundaries of space exploration, rad-hard technology remains the backbone, ensuring reliability and performance in the most unforgiving environments.
