Standardizing Space Ovenized Crystal Oscillators for Lower Cost and Faster Delivery

Building for space is challenging! Program management requirements, parts availability and delivery, parts costs, and testing costs historically make space OCXOs expensive and longlead. Standardizing specifications based on MIL-PRF-55310, NASA EEE-INST-002, NASA Parts Selection List, and GSFC Preferred Parts Lists, and procuring parts to vendors standard drawings can significantly reduce costs and improve delivery of high-performance OCXOs. In this white paper, Quantic Wenzel presents a discussion of parts, materials, and screening specifications for cost and delivery for three grades of OCXOs.
