Russian Earth-Orbiting Satellites To Use US Microchips

Krasnoyarsk, Russia (RIA Novosti) Jan 23, 2008
Russia's major producer of Earth-orbiting satellites said on Tuesday it intends to use microprocessors produced by the U.S.-based firm Aeroflex on its relay satellites. On January 22, representatives of Aeroflex's Colorado division, Aeroflex Colorado Springs, arrived in the town of Zheleznogorsk in the Krasnoyarsk Territory in East Siberia, where the Academician Reshetnev Research and Production Association of Applied Mechanics is located, to present new developments and hold a workshop.

Specialists at Reshetnev, which produces up to 70% of Russia's Earth-orbiting satellites, say that Aeroflex Colorado Springs manufactures highly-integrated radiation-hard microprocessors that can be installed on promising Luch5A/5B satellites.

"These properties make it possible to ensure the durable operation of artificial Earth-orbiting satellite payloads in outer space," a Reshetnev spokeswoman said, adding that the satellite producer had been cooperating with the U.S. firm for two years.

Aeroflex is a U.S.-based technology company that designs, develops, manufactures and offers a wide range of microelectronic and test and measurement products to the aerospace, defense and broadband communications markets.
