The space industry needs to address varying challenges in different markets that have the same structure and teams. In addition to more traditional Class I and Class II projects driven by Geospace (GEO) operators and space agencies, there is more demand for alternative solutions that provide significant cost reductions and better time to market for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) constellations and space exploration vehicles (i.e. launchers, rovers, robots). COTS solutions are increasingly used in these applications to address this new trend, but they bring concerns in regards to orbit evolution, mission duration and changing customer requirements.
