Model-Based Systems Engineering showcased at Global Space Applications Conference 2014

Aerospace Concepts was excited to participate in the very first Global Space Applications Conference, an International Astronautical Federation conference running from June 2 to 4 at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France.

Our newest recruit, Tristan Cook, presented Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) for a University Nanosatellite during the session on Initiatives taken by universities to foster education in satellite-based applications, discussing Aerospace Concepts’ recent collaboration with the University of Adelaide to apply MBSE to the SUSat nanosatellite project.

The presentation covered the creation and development of a model of the SUSat system in the CORE® software suite, incorporating four main aspects of the system: requirements, physical architecture, functional behaviour and verification & validation. This model has been used by a team of students throughout the design and development of SUSat, which will be launched as part of the QB50 project.
