In reference to space technology, reliability, maintainability, and life duration of active and passive electronic, electric, and electromechanic parts are essential success factors of quality assurance. For spaceflight application, these EEE parts must meet high requirements concerning radiation-, vibration-, and temperature resistance. The availability of strategic parts in Europe – independent of manufacturer countries' export regulations – is another crucial point. In the context of a national technology development and qualification program for EEE parts, the needs for parts are identified and prioritized. For this, a close coordination with European space agencies, national and European space industry, and part manufacturers takes place.
