26.1  INTRODUCTION

Probes used in planetary exploration place greater demands on electronics than terrestrial, or even orbital, systems. The most challenging missions are those that go beyond the orbit of Mars. Because missions to Jupiter’s moons, as well as Saturn and its moons, have been identified as high-priority missions by the National ...
