Integrated Cubesat Engineering
4-5 January 2020

Conference Rate: $749

Early Member Rate: $549

Standard Member Rate: $649

This two-day Integrated CubeSat Engineering Workshop (I-CEW) examines the application of Systems Engineering tools and techniques that will provide participants with an understanding of the scope of the skills, industry standards, information, and tools necessary to plan a credible CubeSat Development Program.  Emphasis is on practice over theory using a fully-functional (hardware and software) desktop (non-flight) CubeSat as the system of interest. The course uses the 3U EyasSAT3™ (ES3) desktop satellite (Figure 1), the course follows the progression of a hypothetical CubeSat mission – NanoMet – designed to deliver large scale meteorological imagery from LEO.  NanoMet serves as an end-to-end system engineering and project management training platform to examine issues that develop during each phase of a project lifecycle.

EyasSAT3 Layout and Design

The course is organized along the lines of a real space mission, starting with Pre-Phase A concept development and then progressing from Phase A to D, introducing systems engineering artifacts that would be developed at each major milestone and providing hands-on examples using the NanoMet mission. NanoMet, based on the ES3 platform, is designed to conform to the 3U CubeSat standard in terms of form and fit and includes all standard spacecraft bus functions (power, data handling, communication, and 3-axis attitude determination and control). All hardware was designed to be for use around the world and is "ITAR-free," (it is not space qualified or even qualifiable).  Participants are provided with key lectures and resources and through a variety of in-class exercises will learn by doing.

Introduction to Digital Engineering
5 January 2020

Conference Rate: $450

Early Member Rate: $350

Standard Member Rate: $400

This one-of-a-kind course is at the leading edge of the rapidly emerging field of digital engineering.

The course will introduce Digital Engineering strategies and methods to transform system engineering paradigms deploying model-based digital surrogate truth sources, demonstrate the context and value of implementing uncertainty quantification at all levels and phases of decision making under risk, and translating high-volume, high-velocity digital data into better products, processes, and mission effectiveness by delivering essential knowledge to master risk at the speed of need.

SMARTUQ, an uncertainty quantification (UQ) and analytics software tool, will be used for practical illustrations of the context and methods for UQ applications to the creation of digital surrogate truth sources, quantified margins and uncertainties, and support to decision making under risk.

Design of Electrified Propulsion Aircraft
4-5 January 2020

Conference Rate: $749

Early Member Rate: $549

Standard Member Rate: $649

In this course, participants learn about current developments in electrified propulsion, with an emphasis on hybrid electric aircraft. Participants will learn how to design electrified propulsion aircraft starting from the top-level aircraft requirements. Design examples will include electric and hybrid-electric aircraft of various sizes and missions. Various powertrains will be examined including pure electric, parallel hybrid, serial hybrid, and combinations. It will be demonstrated which design variables are unique to electric and hybrid electric aircraft and how the sizing and performance process of the powertrain components can be executed. Historical and recent electric and hybrid electric aircraft system studies will be reviewed, and standard reporting parameters will be recommended.

Space Standards and Architecture
5 January 2020

Conference Rate: $450

Early Member Rate: $350

Standard Member Rate: $400

This course is intended for individuals and organizations that desire to increase their teams’ understanding of the benefits of and the usability of (1) Space Standards and (2) Architectural Frameworks. The audience should be spaceflight mission planners, managers, designers and engineers that seek guidance on the broad space standards environment and techniques to “harvest” the most beneficial standards to be applied to their missions. The course is for mission users, not standards developers. This applies to all engineering domains but is especially valuable where systems interface across organizational boundaries.
