The objective of this activity is to tighten the AOCS Design VV gaps in order to improve performance and safety for future AOCS systems covering all mission phases. Also to accelerate the VV process by addressing efficient model reduction and surrogate modelling. To improve the analysis visibility imposed by complexity of multiple competing requirements in the face robustness, nonlinearities and couplings.Therefore, the activity shall develop, demonstrate and compare the traditional VV approach with an enhanced VV approach on a complex flexible satellite study case. The enhanced VV approach needs to be assembled within this activity.
