Mission Engineering

As we define it, mission (and systems) engineering is the process that takes a set of broad objectives and constraints and then proceeds to define an affordable space system to meet them. SSD can support the entire space mission analysis and design process. and can also provide support in more specific areas such as:

  • Constellation design and management
  • Orbit design and selection
  • Spacecraft bus conceptual design
  • Ground system conceptual design
  • Launch vehicle selection and spacecraft/launch vehicle integration
  • Concept of operation development
  • Space mission cost modeling
  • Cost and Risk reduction studies
