Session

Technical Poster Session 12: Systems

Location

Utah State University, Logan, UT

Abstract

SSWG has been investigating the applicability of MBSE for designing CubeSats since 2011.

The first phase developed a SysML model of a CubeSat and applied it to the Radio Aurora Explorer. The second phase included modeling behaviors and the third phase included carrying out trade studies.

The current phase is the development of the CubeSat System Reference Model (CSRM).

The CSRM provides the logical architecture of a CubeSat space and ground system. The CSRM logical components are reused as a starting point for a mission-specific CubeSat logical architecture followed by the development of the physical architecture during CubeSat development. The mission-specific team is free to adopt a different logical architecture and modify the CSRM to accommodate the change.
