Abstract. The objective of this paper is to present the rationale and application of Model Based System Engineering and Concurrent Engineering for space systems. In the context of the New Space Economy, characterized by disruptive technologies, standardization, and the entry of private investments into the industry, it is critical to manage space systems effectively among the different involved stakeholders. In order to address all related challenges, systems modelling approaches are used at different levels, from subsystems to satellites to complex mission architectures, like fractionated and federated systems.
