NASA Mars Science Lab Curiosity rover lands on Mars with Interpoint DC-DC converters from Crane Aerospace & Electronics

NASA

REDMOND, Wa., 7 Aug. 2012. Crane Aerospace & Electronics supported NASA’s Curiosity, which landed safely in Gale Crater on Mars, with nine different Interpoint DC-DC converter and EMI filter families, including the company’s SMFLHP, SMRT, SMHF, and SFME.

Crane’s Interpoint  DC-DC converters are designed for the demanding environments in space, defense, aerospace, and industrial applications. Interpoint EMI filters complement the company’s DC-DC converters, simplifying system compliance to MIL-STD-461 and other demanding requirements, says a spokesperson.

"We are very excited about the Mars Curiosity mission, achieving a significant milestone! Interpoint products have been supporting NASA’s Cassini-Huygens, launched in 1997, which is continuing to send back valuable data on Saturn and its moons,” states Ed Fuhr, vice president of Power Solutions for Crane Aerospace & Electronics.

Curiosity’s goal is to seek out carbon-based organic compounds that are the building blocks of life. The Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) was launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on 26 Nov. 2011 via an Atlas V rocket.
