ScopeSET wins contract for Virtual Spacecraft Design

ScopeSET has recently been awarded a contract to build tools facilitating a Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) processes. This contract is part of an ESA TRP (Technology Research Programme) project, called Virtual Spacecraft Design (VSD).

The VSD study, led by EADS Astrium, started in 2005 with the objective to analyze and improve the current spacecraft system level system engineering process. Its goal is the consistent application of model-based techniques, in order to have an improved virtual representation of a spacecraft.

ScopeSET will build the MBSE tools and related services. The new tool-set will allow the consistent definition of a spacecraft system level design, covering requirements, functional architecture, physical architecture, AIT and verification definition. All tools will be based on Eclipse and the Graphical Modeling Framework (GMF).
