Paper Abstract

The Cassini Resource Exchange was developed to assist the Cassini Science Instrument Manager with the management of the spacecraft's science payload. This system, unlike previous development approaches, allocated the entire mass, power, data rate, and budget resources for the science instruments to the principal investigators. The result removed the Cassini project from solving instrument development issues. Problems that did occur were resolved by the principal investigators themselves thought the use of a 'resource exchange'. A resource exchange allowed principal investigators to submit 'bids' to a database. Any other principal investigators with their own resource issue could swap resources with investigators in the database. The resulting trade could mitigate both instrument problems.
