SpEC collaboration and prototype development allows for more frequent launches and innovative spacecraft designs to create more predictable access to space.
SpEC collaboration and prototype development allows for more frequent launches and innovative spacecraft designs to create more predictable access to space. SpEC technology areas include:
Design of a space system/architecture based on broad mission objectives and constraints
Define and characterize alternative concepts and architectures
Detailed assessment of how the organization will operate and control the selected mission
Definition of the major elements required to execute mission operations
The definition and arrangement of systems to satisfy the mission’s communication, command and control requirements
All components required to deliver the mission from the ground to space
Fixed and mobile ground stations, connected by various communication links, that support command and tracking of the mission as well as receive and process telemetry and mission data
Includes the distribution of mission data to operators.
All elements and subsystems associated with the spacecraft operation except for mission-specific systems (mission payloads) and communication
Commuication and processing
RF associated mission payloads (e.g. SAR, SIGINT, etc.)
Optical associated payloads (e.g. laser, IR, etc.)
Electronics specifically designed or intended for space operations e.g. FPGAs, rad-hard, etc.
Application of AI/ML to support all aspects (ground/space/launch) of space operations
