The requirements for selection, control, procurement and usage of EEE parts for space projects are defined by the ECSS standards according to a defined class for the project. The three different classes are defining a compromise between assurance and risk.

Nowadays, we can see new types of projects through the emergence of space constellations in the space industry and the market of cubesats/nanosats. Somehow, we could consider these projects as out of the box since they can assume a risk level higher than before due to redundancy for the constellations or to a choice for the nanosats market.

Thus, for cost or performance needs, some equipment manufacturers are considering the use of automotive components.

Is the use of automotive components an option for the space sector? Can we have access to these components? Do they answer the need of the space sector? How can we assess their quality or reliability?
