Space Talos Ltd

London, United Kingdom

Summary

Space Talos develops and offers solutions that actively shield satellites from space radiation.

Life on Earth is protected from the full impact of solar and cosmic radiation by Earth's magnetic field, 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 processes are used with significantly reduced performance, higher cost and higher power consumption in comparison to currently used components.

Space Talos aspires to change how the space industry protects satellites against radiation.
