QuinStar successfully completed a 28-month program with Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The program entailed developing flight hardware for the NASA-ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) Synthetic Aperture Radar (NISAR) mission. QuinStar’s deliverables included Ka-band solid-state power amplifiers. The SSPA is an enabling element of the communication payload for the high-speed, space-to-earth datalink.
The NISAR satellite uses advanced radar imaging to monitor changes to […]
QuinStar was recently certified to test its space-qualified millimeter-wave hardware by Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). After administering both the System Safety Survey and Vendor Chamber Verification Survey, JPL certified QuinStar’s thermal vacuum chamber for testing flight hardware for JPL/NASA missions.
