System engineering SPACE
The term systems engineering specifies the interdisciplinary approach which describes the entire process of transforming requirements into a technical solution.
In the military space sector the entire chain – starting with the implementation of operational requirements, technical concept, all the way to the finished system – is to be considered in its entirety and full complexity.
For the qualitative and quantitative evaluation we examine every detail of this overall system chain.
- Investigation and analysis of user demands
- Available technology level
- System concept and draft
- Architecture space and ground segment for satellite systems
- Space segment
- Simulation of orbit constellations
- Analysis satellite bus
- Efficiency of earth observation pay load(s)
- Data communication
- Carrier selection
- Satellite ground segment
- Data receipt
- Safety aspects
- Life cycle costs (LCC)
- Insurance issues
Military space applications and the military use of space concern all capability categories of the German Federal Armed Forces. Their dependence on space-based infrastructures will continue to increase in future.
