At the request of the Satellites Panel of the National Research Council (NRC) Planetary Science Decadal Survey, a Rapid Mission Architecture (RMA) study of possible missions to Saturn's moon Enceladus was conducted at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in January and February of 2010. This was one of many studies commissioned by this NRC Decadal Survey. In this study, 15 Enceladus mission architectures were examined that spanned a broad range of potential science return and total estimated mission…

A rule-based decision support tool for architecting Earth observing missions
TLDR
The recursive nature of rule-based systems shows potential to model synergies between instruments and measurements, at a sufficient level of fidelity for architectural trade studies, especially for the ones conducted in committees with experts such as Decadal Surveys.
VASSAR: Value assessment of system architectures using rules
TLDR
A general methodology that can be used to assess the relative merit of several candidate system architectures under the presence of objective, subjective, quantitative, and qualitative stakeholder needs is proposed.
