Title:  The Hidden Problem in Preliminary System Design: A Space System Analysis Example


In preliminary design problems, one of the challenges is bringing together a team of experts representing not only many different technical domains, but also widely differing analytic and software methods. Some team members bring sophisticated spreadsheets, some depend on custom code, others bring models that depend on high-end, dedicated engineering tools, and no one has thought about how to make them work together. It can be time consuming to integrate, verify, and sanity-check components in such an integration effort, often under duress.

To elucidate these issues, this presentation outlines the preliminary design of a satellite constellation for an environmental monitoring mission. We used ModelCenter to combine models representing launcher capabilities, sensor properties, satellite orbits, constellation design, and cost analysis. We found this to be an effective method for bringing together methods from diverse contributors and software methods, greatly minimizing and often eliminating the cost of customization of component analytic tools. The method also provided ready access to numerous graphical and parametric analysis methods, enabling rapid verification of each component’s integration.
