Space Systems Actualization

I am happy to share a link to my latest journal article scrutinizing the systems engineering methodologies and approaches of formulating and implementing space missions. A survey of space mission architecture and system actualisation methodologies This research seeks to improve space mission actualization methodologies by examining non-traditional emerging trends in space systems engineering practices. Further, we   […]
