Paper Abstract

As a cornerstone in NASA's Origins program, the primary goal of the Terrestrial Planet Finder (TPF) mission is to directly detect the existence of Earth-like planets around nearby stars. This paper presents a process and a software tool, based on a quantitative systems engineering methodology, to conduct architectural trade studies during the TPF mission conceptual design phase.
