SpaceCOTSTM is the result of a systematic and statistical evaluation process to characterize selected and manufacture-traceable COTS for “general” space (mostly LEO-MEO) application extracting carefully chosen procedures used in current Space Qualification Standards (e.g. ESA ESCC-Q-ST-60-13C for COTS). The adaptation of those standards is a compromise between cost and mission (typically 5-7 years) reliability (varied qualities) and raised for high quantities.

ASTRIONICS GmbH named such mass produced, test-passed COTS: SpaceCOTSTM and it is its brand.


    •  Availability of numerous and different parts and materials
    • Best Quality/Cost Ratio and attractive prices
    • Fast delivery
    • Project specific and customer support
    • Best pre-selected COTS
    • Qualification tests based on ESA/MIL Standards
    • Defined Radiation hardness levels
    • Screening test by request
    • Production of Hi-Rel parts based on COTS
    • Complementary datasheet with space specifications
    • No ITAR and no export limitations


High reliability of electronic components is fundamental for space missions and many other applications on Earth including:

    • radioactive environs (power plants, nuclear medicine)
    • research labs
    • high altitude avionic



Some of them are already, in huge quantities available and without any restriction for 7 years LEO-MEO missions, e.g.
