• Can models (with documentation) improve communication, characterization, and specification and of the system design better than documents alone?
  • Can such a model achieve enough commonality to be reusable 

FireSAT Model Captures and Integrates 

  • Mission Concept and context
  • Functional design
  • Data and interface definitions
  • Integrated Mission analysis
  • High level (e.g. ground coverage)
  • Low level analysis (e.g. solar array sizing)
  • Behavior (scenarios and states)
  • Information is also described in cross cutting terms (e.g. functions mapped to physical implementation)
