Abstract?An extensive survey of logic and memory component manufacturers conducted by the NASA Electronic Research Center and the industry has resulted in estimates of the state-of-the-art of components available to designers of on-board guidance and control computers for long-term deep-space missions for the 1970-72 period. The vehicle for the survey were the mission requirements for the synchronous satellite, lunar orbiter, Mars orbiter, and Jupiter fly-by solar probe missions.
Index terms?Bipolar LSI, component selection, component survey, computer hardware requirements, computer hardware technologies, guidance computer requirements, large-scale integration, memory technologies, mission analysis, MOS (metal-oxide semiconductor), on-board aerospace computer components, semiconductor logic circuits, semi-conductor logic technologies.
