RockSAT is a NASA program allowing university students low cost access to experimentation in a space environment. This poster will present data obtained from NNUís experimental payload that was launched in June 2012 aboard a NASA sounding rocket from Wallops Island, VA over the Atlantic Ocean to 100 miles altitude. The effects of this high vibration, high-g (20 gís) radiation intensive environment were studied in two experiments: 1)Radiation hardened CMOS FLeX flexible Silicon on Polymer integrated circuit memory made by American Semiconductor, Inc. (Boise, ID) and 2)A new superhydrophobic nanomaterial coating developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The accelerations, temperature, humidity, and radiation count were also all monitored throughout this flight.





This workshop is receiving technical co-sponsorship support from the IEEE Electron Devices Society.
