Abstract:

The use of systems architecture, following a set of integrated descriptions from an architecture framework, has been well codified in Department of Defense acquisition and systems engineering. However, in the Space Science and Technology ST community, this guidance and practice is not commonly adopted. This paper outlines an approach to leverage the changes made in DoD Architecture Framework 2.0 DoDAF2.0, and the renewed emphasis on data and support to acquisition decision analysis. After decomposing the Space ST design lifecycle into phases, design milestones and activities using process models, a set of DoDAF prescribed and Fit-for-Purpose views are constructed into a reference implementation of a system architecture. This approach attempts to make DoDAF2.0 more relevant and integrated with ST missions and the decisions that are encountered.
