Spacecraft Avionics Development

The engineers at HSFL have intricate knowledge of space-grade hardware design.  In addition to over 7 years of experience with outsourcing circuit manufacturing, HSFL has the necessary software and equipment to rapidly fabricate fully-functional circuit boards in-house. Our bench-top, batch solder reflow oven is used for production of multiple boards at a time. We also have the in-house capability of designing and fabricating avionics enclosures with military/space grade connector systems.

Here is a list of some of our resources:

  • Machine Shop, including a full size mill and lathe
  • Conduction, resistance, and hot air soldering stations
  • Batch solder reflow oven for leaded and lead-free assemblies
  • Full suites of schematic capture and PCB layout software
  • PCB milling machine, 12×9 design space, and milling with 7mil trace/isolation
  • PCB multi-layer press, 5-ton capability for up to 8 layers
  • Resistance spot welder, 320 Watt-second capacity
  • Automated data acquisition and test systems
  • RF network and spectrum analyzer
  • Environmental test facilities for vibration, altitude, thermal, and vacuum tests
