Currently within CDF studies, the majority of considerations and design aspects of the ground segment and mission operations are captured manually within an integrated team and iterated upon during the CDF sessions via presentations and verbal exchange. There is a limited capture of the ground segment design and associated parameters values within the Open Concurrent Design Tool and a limited digital integration of operational concerns. Whilst the ground segment is treated at mainly a high conceptual level in the early design phases, there are areas where a formal capture within a system model could improve efficiency and potentially better assess feasibility of innovative concepts. Other areas of interest might be digital capture of full ground station characteristics, enabling model-based trade off capabilities for a ground-space link budget, the creation of reference libraries for ground segment system models for re-use across studies, or generation of sections of the final report or of early phase ground segment and operations domain deliverables from a model. This activity shall perform an analysis of where added value through additional digital capture and model-based representation of ground segment and operations within CDF studies could be achieved. Following this analysis, a suitably flexible/sustainable method and tooling to achieve this shall be identified and prototyped, utilising e.g. existing ECSS-TM-25/OCDT modelling capabilities and accounting for other tools utilised in later phases of the ground segment and operations development.
