From outer space to the front lines, the Boeing Radiation Effects Laboratory (BREL) prepares your product for the harshest environments imaginable.
Run by our team of world-class scientists, the laboratory leads the industry in simulating the effects of destructive radiation on critical materials and electronics. BREL then uses these simulations to test, evaluate, and qualify products for use in situations where failure is not an option.
With many facilities available within Boeing and through other agencies, the laboratory is capable of simulating almost any radiated environment. From natural space radiation exposure to nuclear weapon-system threats, you can be confident that wherever your product is going, it will be prepared.
Specific testing abilities range from determining the effects of atmospheric neutrons on commercial avionics systems to assessing total ionizing dose and single-event effects of cosmic rays and natural space radiation on electronics. The laboratory also offers other services such as instrumentation and test equipment for measuring the electrical parameters of circuits before and after radiation exposure.
Since 1963, BREL has helped companies protect their people and products around the world and into space. Contact us for information about contracting opportunities, capabilities, and pricing.
