A Demonstration of how a check of spacecraft operability can lead to spacecraft design changes that reduce cost of operations
Often, the design of a spacecraft for a new mission is developed that is devoid of any operational influence, only to realize that the system is totally inoperable. This project will focus on assessing operability of a particular space mission and system design and culminate in proposed design changes that are supported by rigorous engineering and cost data.
