    Space Systems Architectures


    This session addresses current and future space systems architectures designed to realize promising concepts for Earth orbiting or exploration missions, both robotic and crewed. These architectures and their elements and building blocks should aim at an increase in functionality, performance, efficiency, reliability and flexibility of operations, while building on state-of-the-art, innovative or even disruptive technologies. The scope of the session includes architectures for single satellite systems or multiple satellite systems, such as constellations, formations, swarms, distributed systems, and system-of-systems (including hybridization with terrestrial systems). Ground-versus-space allocation of functionality and aspects of autonomy, both on-board and on-ground, may be addressed.
