Arlington, Va. and Pittsburgh, Pa. - Tomorrow’s World Today, a cutting-edge television show for the latest developments on sustainability, technology and innovation, will feature CAES, a leader in advanced mission-critical electronics for aerospace and defense, in Season Four of its Emmy-nominated television show. Premiering on August 21, the episode explores the science behind how CAES is pioneering solutions that enable the world’s most critical missions.

For more than 30 years, CAES engineers have expertly designed a complete line of microelectronics to enable spacecraft and satellites that demand reliability in high cosmic radiation and extreme temperatures without degradation to its electronics and computers. Field Reporter Greg Costantino traveled to the CAES’ facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado, to hear about CAES' space heritage and to take a hands-on tour of the manufacturing, testing and packaging of its radiation-hardened microelectronics. Costantino explores how this CAES technology is powering space missions, such as the Mars Perseverance Rover, and is also supporting the medical imaging industry in computed tomography (CT) scanners.

“It’s an exciting time for space exploration, and we’re pleased to be able to shine a light on executing high tech in the harshest places on and off earth,” said Mike Elias, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Space Systems Division, CAES.

"Viewers will truly enjoy this episode," said Julian Taylor, Executive Producer and Director of Tomorrow's World Today. "It's fascinating to explore the rigorous process that something as small as a semiconductor needs to follow in order to be useful in space."

Season Four, Episode Five of Tomorrow's World Today featuring CAES will air on Saturday, August 21, at 8:30 am EST on the Science Channel and Sunday, August 22, at 6:30 a.m. EST on the Discovery Channel. It will also be available to stream on DiscoveryGo and ScienceGo the following week.
