24th Annual Components for Military & Space Electronics Virtual Conference

April 19-23, 2021

The premier event focused on the design, reliability, and application of electronic components for use in avionics, aerospace, military, and commercial space systems.

The Mission:

Deliver a low cost, virtual conference experience focused on high quality technical talks, keynotes and panel discussions that foster maximum attendee participation/interaction and furthers our collective understanding of the technical challenges faced in our industry. Showcase the supplier base to the greatest extend possible. Educate the industry, especially young component engineers, in order to secure the future defense of our country.

The Program:

  • Keynote talks by industry leaders
  • Over 35 technical presentations by industry experts with Q&A
  • Focused panel discussion on topics such as; use of alternate grade parts for mil and space
  • Vender presentations and virtual exhibits
  • Cutting edge tutorials

Still time to submit an abstract for consideration by the CMSE Technical Program Committee.

Tutorial Registration Options

VIRTUAL: Thermal Materials and Testing: Key Solutions for Mil/Aerospace Electronics Systems (4/19)

Instructor: Dave Saums, DS&A LLC


A major failure mechanism for electronic systems is inadequate heat dissipation, both from individual components and at the system level. Heat is the single largest cause of failure, with vibration and dust and other environmental factors as examples of other factors. Understand the issues and learn how to mitigate…read more

Cost: $375.00

VIRTUAL: Volatiles Control in Hermetic Electronic Components (4/23)

Instructor: Thomas Green, TJ Green Associates, LLC
Robert Lowry, Electronics Materials Consultant
Andy Hayden, Edale Consulting


This tutorial includes a basic review of the Mil Spec test methods in place to prevent moisture related failures in military and Hi Rel systems where functional component reliability is of utmost importance (e.g. IC’s, Hybrids, MEMS and sensors, Class III Medical, Optoelectronics, etc). The focus is on hermeticity testing per MIL-STD-883 TM 1014 and the latest developments and understanding of RGA (Residual Gas Analysis) per TM 1018. Hydrogen mitigation strategies and methods will also be reviewed…read more
