Systems Modelling and Simulation of the ESA e.Deorbit Space Debris Removal Mission

In the frame of the Architecture Definition phase, a highly integrated and collaborative MBSE process related to Systems Modeling and Simulation has been developed and applied for supporting the iterative generation and maturation of the system requirements, architectures and system budgets at phase B1 level. e.Deorbit is a compelling mission concept that addresses the most pressing debris challenge for Europe: the post-life disposal of ESA’s environmental satellite Envisat.
