− This paper describes the mathematical foundation and algorithmic development of a multidisciplinary design optimization technique to provide spacecraft performance optimization in a constrained environment. The method introduced, referred to here as the Early Small Satellite System Analysis Method (ESSAM), incorporates the use optimization algorithms to provide insight into the effect individual technologies have on performance and cost parameters even when the system is at a low definition… CONTINUE READING
