Aerospace Concepts was excited to participate in the very first Global Space Applications Conference, an International Astronautical Federation conference running from June 2 to 4 at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France.

Our newest recruit, Tristan Cook, presented Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) for a University Nanosatellite during the session on Initiatives taken by universities to foster education in satellite-based applications, discussing Aerospace Concepts’ recent collaboration with the University of Adelaide to apply MBSE to the SUSat nanosatellite project.

The presentation covered the creation and development of a model of the SUSat system in the CORE® software suite, incorporating four main aspects of the system: requirements, physical architecture, functional behaviour and verification & validation. This model has been used by a team of students throughout the design and development of SUSat, which will be launched as part of the QB50 project.
