48 PCB007 MAGAZINE I DECEMBER 2020 with the realization that heterogeneous inte- gration—assembling different types of devices rather than monolithic fabrication—is an im- portant enabler for continued progress in the semiconductor industry. SpaceX, NASA, ESA Launch Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich Mission E Fresh off their second crewed launch for NASA, SpaceX temporarily shifted focus on launches to the U.S. West Coast, where a Fal- con 9 rocket launched the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich oceanography satellite in cooperation with NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmo- spheric Administration, the European Space Agency, and various other partners. BAE Systems to Develop Capabilities for Future Vertical Lift Initiative E BAE Systems has been awarded multiple con- tracts from the U.S. Army to develop key tech- nologies for the Advanced Teaming Demon- stration Program (A-Team). Understanding MIL-PRF-31032, Part 5 E Continuing with Part 5 of the discussion on understanding the military PCB performance standard MIL-PRF-31032, Anaya Vardya dis- cusses the remaining three new procedures to address the unique requirements of the military. Airbus Wins ESA TRUTHS Study for Metrological Traceability of Earth Observation Data E Airbus has been awarded the lead in the Eu- ropean Space Agency (ESA) contract for the TRUTHS A/B1 (System Feasibility Studies and Pre-Developments) as part of ESA's Earth Ob- servation Earth Watch Programme. Defense Speak Interpreted: Intel Is Now Making a 'SHIP' E Perhaps you recently saw that Intel was award- ed a contract for a SHIP by the U.S. Depart- ment of Defense. However, this one will not float on the water since SHIP stands for state- of-the-art heterogeneous integration prototype. Denny Fritz explains. SMTA Europe Webinar: What Is a Good Solder Joint, and How Can Solder Joints Be Tested? E What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long- term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webi- nar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis. The Aerospace and Defense Chapter of the HIR E Nolan Johnson and Andy Shaughnessy recent- ly spoke with Jeff Demmin of Keysight Tech- nologies, who breaks down the work his team has done on the Aerospace and Defense Chap- ter of the Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (HIR). The Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap for Aerospace and Defense E Most people in the semiconductor industry are familiar with the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), which provided guidance for the industry starting in 1991 (as the National Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors). The baton was handed to the Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (HIR),
