Engineering consulting services for satellite ground systems

The client:
OHB System AG

OHB System AG is one of Europe’s largest aerospace companies, specializing in satellite systems and other aerospace applications. As a principle contractor, OHB is responsible for developing the satellite (space segment) as well as developing and supplying the ground segment needed to control the system.
The ground segment of a satellite mission encompasses the systems and software to pilot the spacecraft. It also involves operators and engineers who use system-specific procedures for satellite operation.

Our services:

  • Derive precise functional and non-functional requirements based on client documents
  • Create subsystem specifications
  • Create draft design of ground systems
  • Create draft operational concept
  • Design test plans, specifications and procedures for ground system components based on client and system requirements
  • Ensure chain of verification, from requirements and specifications to testing procedures

Our services included overarching system engineering work covering the ground system and its operations, as well as individual ground stations. In the process, we followed the standards of the European Cooperation for Space Standardization (ECSS) commonly used in European aerospace, as well as national standards and norms, including the Working Conditions Act, Radiation Protection Act and DGUV (German Social Accident Insurance) regulations.
We used IBM Rational DOORS to trace all requirements and ensure that these were covered in the performed tests.
