Paper Abstract

The Virtual System Integration and Testing (VSIT) paradigm is presented as a means for verification and cost and risk reduction of space system technologies. Components and benefits of the paradigm are explained, accompanied by examples of its application as carried out by the Boeing VSIT team. Particular attention is paid to the current application of VSIT to the Orbital Express (OE) program. Based on examples of the application of VSIT and its latest application to the OE program, the conclusion is drawn that VSIT is a valuable paradigm that can significantly reduce the costs and risks of space system technology development and provide for a cost-effective and thorough means of verification of system level performance.
