    If the qualification of the devices being considered do not meet mission requirements (e.g., was performed over a temperature range narrower than your application requires, contains no radiation data), do you have a means by which to augment or translate test conditions to those more representative of your mission?

    Suggestions, Observations and Lessons Learned

    In the case where you need to use a part due to functionality, cost, or schedule, but there is, for example, no mission-relevant data for a specific parameter available, there may be options to assist you in making an assessment. Among these are joining a collaborative working group; consulting with academic colleagues working in the area; hiring an experienced consultant with expertise in the specific discipline, or searching open database web sites such as https://radcentral.jpl.nasa.gov/ or https://radhome.gsfc.nasa.gov/radhome/RadDataBase/RadDataBase.html
