​​Reduce Complexity of Satellite Avionics Integration and Test​

Engineering departments responsible for component production as well as integration and test of satellite avionics systems are facing the challenge of building increasingly complex systems, at higher volumes, with shorter and shorter program timelines. Satellite avionics units need to support a variety of signal types, including power, command/communication, payload interface, and sensor I/O while also collecting more data from a larger number of connections. At the same time, avionics packages are getting smaller in size as the small satellite revolution increases the overall demand for satellite systems.


  • ​​Manage new and changing requirements for avionics to interface with the satellite bus and other subsystems

  • ​Scale test solutions across the satellite avionics lifecycle from production to systems integration testing and electronic ground support equipment (EGSE)

  • ​Develop satellite test capability more efficiently by leveraging the reuse of hardware and software components

  • ​Analyze data across satellite system product lifecycles and programs to improve development time and design reliability 

  • ​Optimize equipment utilization to maintain throughput and yield while minimizing waste​
