The Space Systems Design Editor

SSDE, the Space Systems Design Editor, is the primary modeling environment for VSEE. Building on the well-established SysML notation, it provides powerful editors and browsers to create, explore and annotate VSEE Models.

SSDE covers typical views required for the definition of Spacecraft design, Assembly/Integration/Test (AIT) and verification. The output of the tools is a (design) model of the Spacecraft, comprising requirements, functional architecture, physical architecture, Spacecraft operation, AIT flow, verification cases and the design of the AIT environment.

SSDE provides the following key functions
