Paper Abstract

With a greater interest in deep space exploration and space systems in general, the radiation requirement for spacecraft operations has increased considerably. Photonics technology is the future technology that can survive these adverse environmental requirement levels. Companies are investigating the use of photonics for spacecraft system and are also pushing the test criteria for survivable space components to meet these new levels. This paper will address the requirements for space systems in the 21st century and the projected research and development of photonics technology.
