Life on Earth is protected from the full impact of solar and cosmic radiation by Earth’s magnetic fields which traps some of this radiation around the planet. As we travel farther from Earth’s atmosphere, we are exposed to increasing levels of radiation and its damaging effects.

• Ionizing radiation, stopping in semiconducting components, can corrupt data, interrupt operations or permanently damage electronic circuitry. 

• Passive radiation hardening is achieved by adding metal layers around sensitive electronics. This is not always possible (e.g. solar panel) and mitigates the radiation level only. 

• For high radiation environments, only semiconductor circuits from old fabrication process are used with significantly reduced performance, higher cost and higher power consumption in comparison to currently used components. 

Space Talos is the world's first company that actively shields satellites from space radiation. We aspire to change how space industry protects satellites against radiation.
