brand rad-hard solutions included a linear regulator, voltage
reference, PWM controller, MOSFET drivers, quad comparator,
8-channel and 16-channel multiplexers, and RS-422 receivers
& drivers.
The Renesas Intersil brand has a long history in the space
industry spanning more than six decades, beginning with
the founding of Radiation Inc. in 1950. Since then, virtually
every satellite, shuttle launch and deep-space exploration
mission has included Intersil-branded products. Renesas
leverages this experience to deliver efficient, thermally optimized
and reliable SMD, MIL-STD-883 and MIL-PRF 38535
Class-V/Q Intersil-branded products for the defense, highreliability
(Hi-Rel), and rad-hard space markets. Renesas Intersil-brand
rad-hard ICs support subsystems for mission
critical applications in data communications transfer;
power supplies and power conditioning; general protection
circuitry; and telemetry, tracking and control (TT&C).
Deep space is a challenging environment for spaceflight
and asteroid exploration systems, particularly due to the intense
radiation environment encountered in nearly all mission
profiles. Design, layout, certain process technologies, and
manufacturing steps like burn-in and total dose testing of ICs
ensures predictable performance and prevents system failure
while in flight and on long duration robotic and crewed missions
to other planets.

alifornia-based JetPack Aviation recently announced
that its Speeder VTOL has been selected
by the highly competitive AFWERX High
Speed VTOL (HSVTOL) Concept Challenge,
launched in partnership with the US Air Force
(USAF) and US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM).
JetPack Aviation is one of three OEMs included
in the 35 successful challengers, which were
selected from a total of 218 submissions. Initial
presentations are being made to the AFWERX representatives
this week to highlight the capabilities
of the Speeder and its potential applications for
military operations.
Looking to satisfy mission profiles including the
infiltration and exfiltration of Special Operations
Forces (SOF), personnel recovery, aeromedical evacuation, and
tactical mobility at jet-type speeds, the JetPack Aviation Speeder
VTOL fits the HSVTOL concept well. Powered by small, gimballed
turbojet engines, the Speeder promises to reach speeds approaching
300 mph, with the type of payload capability currently
available only from considerably larger helicopter
airframes. The Speeder's footprint is also considerably reduced
since it has no rotors, ducted fans, or propellers, which reduces/negates
the need for specific ground infrastructure.
Launching the HSVTOL Concept Challenge, Reid Melville,
Chief Innovation Officer, Air Force Research Laboratory
(AFRL) Transformational Capabilities Office, said: " The USAF
and USSOCOM are seeking groundbreaking ideas that will further
strengthen operational effectiveness and efficiency in
contested, resource-constrained, and runway-independent
settings. " Those who progress through the challenge rounds
may become eligible for funding associated with research, development,
and testing, and subsequently procurement contracts
to produce and field aircraft to the USAF.

Easily transportable in a car or motorcycle trailer, and immediately
ready to fly, with no charging or other aviation infrastructure
requirements, the Speeder offers high-speed forward
flight with control and lift effected by aerodynamic surfaces as
required, building on the aircraft's ability to fly on engine
thrust vectoring. The Speeder is modular, offering a variety of
missionized payloads, optionally piloted and simple enough to
operate and maintain under austere field conditions. The aircraft
burns regular Jet A-1, kerosene, or diesel, but in a recent
cooperative supply agreement with Prometheus Fuels Inc., JetPack
Aviation has committed to using 100% zero net carbon
fuel in all its own future operations.
JetPack Aviation has completed flight trials with the first full
scale Speeder - P1 prototype. Flight test of P1.5, the second full
scale prototype, is expected to begin in late 2021. Aircraft P2,
featuring a fully formed body, small field-removable wings,
and forward canards, should fly in 2022. Thanks to its unique
combination of heavy payload, speed, VTOL operation, simplicity
and autonomous flight options, the Speeder will offer a
