Systems Engineering

We have performed high-level functional-based system engineering on several projects, including architecting a store-and-forward satellite network. The system accommodated planned and unplanned asset communication as well as limited two-way communication. Both the space and ground segments were organized to be as flexible as possible to meet changing customer demands.

Our approach to system design is to develop methods of meeting specific individual requirements in general terms, in order to maximize future reusability of system components. We tend to develop distributed systems which contain interconnected functionally-specific components coupled with generic, lower-capability computing elements. This type of system architecture, if done properly, is extremely versatile and extensible.
