Mission Analysis

Propulsion link Analysis link Trajectory link Launcher link

We offer a broad range of mission analysis and design services, particularly in the spacecraft propulsion area. Over the past decade, we have supported over a dozen NASA and USAF programs by providing optimal system-level solutions for payload delivery and/or operational maneuver requirements. This involves a complex trade between Propulsion System Engineering, Trajectory Design, and Launch Vehicle Performance. In the early stages of a project, payload design and performance is also a concern, and the basic vehicle architecture and/or concept of operations may need to be determined. Later, the process will evolve from simple analysis to detailed system engineering and integration.

Silverbird excels at rapid-turnaround trade studies and system architecture development in the early stages of a program. This enables an accurate assessment of the cost and feasibility of a project, and perhaps most important prevents mistakes that would be expensive to fix later.
