The outstanding properties of bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) have been attractive for spacecraft applications due to the associated steep performance requirements. With advances in BMG manufacturing and supply chain, BMG spacecraft components have shown increases in technology readiness and maturation of the corresponding part qualification processes. In this talk, recent work involving the development of BMG gears and other components will be discussed. In depth mechanical and thermal characterization of the BMG alloys for component qualification will also be presented.
