Mission Architecture

Mission architecture and design services are critical in ensuring mission success. INCOSE estimates that effective systems engineering can save 20% on mission budgets. Without effective systems engineering two in three projects will not meet their objectives, while one in three will fail.

“Working with Craft Prospect on mission and systems architecture for our CubeSat development helped us quickly build our understanding of how to balance risk vs. cost for trade-offs and design decisions. They advised us on appropriate selection of standards and techniques for our comms-based system, and provided valuable input on concepts of operation and how these flow into the system specification itself. ”
