Provide a generalized simulation framework that enables quick composition and adaptation of building blocks in order to improve theefficiency and effectiveness of the development, adaptation and maintenance of end to end simulators for space science missions.DescriptionEnd-To-End mission performance simulators (E2ES) in Space Science have been typically ad-hoc developments to support phase 0/A studies and are usually not maintained throughout mission lifetime. Data processing pipelines are then a separate development started from scratch. The availability of a standard E2ES architecture implemented in a tool, which enables generation of a simulation framework and access to libraries of models, would allow the development of standardized mission E2E simulators, which can evolvefrom Phase A/B1 to later phases. This concept, E2ES reference architecture and requirements, has been studied in the GSP activity “MISSION PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT FOR SPACE SCIENCE MISSIONS)
