Modular Open System Architecture

Our modular, open system architecture approach enables a large verity of implementation for modeling and simulation. The system can accommodate various third party modules and tools, or, OAI developed specific modules to meet customers’ needs. We maintain our own proprietary set of physics based environment models, component generic and specific models of all various spacecraft components, and even driven simulation architecture to provide the best fidelity and value through our modular, open system. The architecture, which is a part of our tailored systems engineering approach, allows for us to successfully execute missions and programs with rapidly responsive needs.

Rapid & Responsive Designs

We specialize in missions with rapidly responsive space system architectures and program needs. We also have our own suite of ACORN products that utilize a rapid and responsive architecture. OAI developed software plays a key role in our products and services, allowing users the ability to run high-fidelity simulations, utilizing flight software with flight heritage and flight processor benchmarking, all in a modular, rapid and responsive environment. We know that no two missions are the same, and we are uniquely qualified to perform hardware and software evaluations quickly and efficiently to assure system configurations meet each specific mission’s needs. From idea formation through design and development, culminating in on-orbit success, OAI has the products and engineering talent to carry an idea through to fruition.

Boutique Missions & Payloads

Leveraging our existing technology, knowledge of satellite bus design, functionality and application, and extensive partnerships with component, sub-system and segment suppliers/providers, OAI can assist in determining, acquiring and integrating the various parts and pieces required for mission success. Through our Modular Open System Architecture (MOSA) concept validation and performance testing, OAI has developed and proved its capability to handle and work with flight hardware (including flight optics), payload simulations and functionality, and mission segments (ground, control, guidance & navigation) to support missions and the payloads required. Because of this capability, OAI can assist with: innovative, non-traditional missions/payloads; boutique RF design, products, and services; market assessment and teaming assistance; and regulatory insight and compliance.
