70 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I DECEMBER 2019 MilAero007 Highlights land the first manned Mars mission. To do so, they're using the fastest supercomputer in the world, the NVIDIA GPU-powered Summit system at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. From the Hill: Technology and Reliability Demands Drive Designers and MIL-PRF-31032 Specification E With the future demand for more and more military electronics, certification to the PCB MIL-PRF-31032 specification becomes a busi- ness decision for many fabricators. Fluency in the MIL-PRF-31032 language is a key first step to understand the requirements and commu- nicate with the DoD. Mike Hill defines many terms related to this military specification that you should review before informing the DoD of your intent to certify. Requirements of Being a MIL-certified Shop E Barry Matties speaks with American Standard Circuits' VP of Business Development David Lackey, who has nearly 40 years of experience producing PCBs for the mil/aero market. Da- vid talks about what it's like being a MIL-certi- fied shop and the stringent quality and report- ing requirements that it entails. World's First Electric Race Plane Unveiled at Dubai Airshow E The world's first electric race plane has been unveiled on day one at the Dubai Airshow, showcasing custom modified technology built by one of the racing teams set to take part in the inaugural Air Race E event next year. The racing series will provide a testbed for innova- tion and accelerate the journey toward electric commercial travel. Defense Speak Interpreted: Executive Agent E After reading one of Dennis Fritz's column, you may have realized that electronics pack- aging technology development came from the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Crane, Indi- ana. One of its core responsibilities is the as- signment of "executive agent" for PCBs and electronic interconnects. But what is this "ex- ecutive agent" thing, frequently shortened to EA? Fritz explains. University Rover Challenge Tests Student Teams E Jose Antelo, Luis Toledo, and Francisco Fer- nandez, members of the California State University (CSU) Fullerton Rover Challenge team, are working on building a competi- tive robotic platform to compete with other universities in a competition hosted by The Mars Society known as The University Rover Challenge. Bosch Sends Sensor System to ISS E With the help of Bosch's SoundSee technology, it is possible to analyze the information con- tained in emitted noises. In a research partner- ship, Bosch and Astrobotic are exploring ways to use the technology on the International Space Station to determine whether machines or their individual components need repair or replacement. How NASA Is Helping Humans Reach the Red Planet, Using GPUs E A group of NASA scientists and engineers is working with colleagues from Old Dominion University and NVIDIA to simulate with un- precedented accuracy the physics needed to
