Why & How To Connect System Models to Engineering Analyses & Simulations
This presentation will discuss the benefits of an integrated MBSE approach for the design of complex systems, using the CubeSat MBSE case study as an example. The case study describes an integrated, executable MBSE representation of the Radio Aurora Explorer (RAX) CubeSat mission. The CubeSat system model describes the configuration and properties for various systems and subsystems, and is capable of executing behavior and parametric models for analyzing subsystem functions and states of the spacecraft. It is comprised of a SysML model, a set of analytical models , and a high fidelity space system simulation model. Behavioral models were executed for a representative RAX mission to study energy state and data collection capabilities. This work was undertaken to demonstrate the power, scalability, and utility of MBSE tools and methods that are available to help meet the challenge of designing spacecraft missions of ever-increasing complexity.
The presentation will then provide an example of automotive applications, with a collision avoidance case study, in which the logic of the control command system for 'brake/steer' decision contained in the SysML model is tested and validated by a series of scenarios executed using physics-based model.

The theme of this year's GLRC is "Giant Leaps With Systems Engineering." The conference program will reflect on significant accomplishments of Systems Engineering, including celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. Looking ahead to the next 50 years, the GLRC13 will explore the possibilities with systems engineering in meeting the challenges of today and in the future.
