Approximation methods for estimating the availability of optical ground networks
TLDR
In this paper, we present a new approach for quantifying the availability of an optical ground network that is both computationally inexpensive and suitable for high-level architectural concept studies. Expand

Assessing the impact of real-time communication services on the space network ground segment
Communication networks to support space missions were originally architected around non-real time data services. In fact, missions have always required real-time services (e.g. telemetry andExpand

Exploring classification algorithms for early mission formulation cost estimation
Current cost estimation methods for early mission formulation typically use parametric regressions and analogies based on historical data sets. This approach, while widely spread in industry, is alsoExpand
