Project Quicklook

Tactical Science Solutions (TSS) has developed a design scenario called Quicklook, which is robust enough to answer the OMG Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML™) questions posed by our sponsors, The Aerospace Corporation and the George Mason University Systems Engineering & Operations Research Department. The Quicklook project team will develop a SysML based architectural design and model for the operational phase of the Tactical Satellite-3 (TacSat-3) vehicle.

TacSat-3 Background

United States government and military satellite systems have traditionally been very large, expensive, and long-term projects. The need to adapt to the changing world environment has led policy makers to rethink this methodology. In 2005, the Presidentís National Security Presidential Directive/NSPD-40 established the Responsive Space Initiative. This initiative called for more agility in the military space arena by providing smaller, less expensive, and more flexible systems. The Tactical Satellite Program is one of the programs striving to reach the goals of the Responsive Space Initiative. (TacSat-3) will be the next iteration of the Tactical Satellite Program. TacSat-3 is a low cost, small, rapidly deployable satellite system that will provide responsive intelligence support to tactical and operational military commanders.
