Probabilistic methods for systems engineering with application to nanosatellite laser communications
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
Risk-tolerant platforms such as nanosatellites may be able to accept moderate performance uncertainty if it enables the reduction of cost or improves manufacturability, in contrast to large-budget space missions. New ...
Characterizing uncertainty to manage risk in spacecraft development with application to structures and mass
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
Most space programs experience significant cost and schedule growth over the course of program development. Poor uncertainty management has been identified as one of the leading causes of program cost and schedule overruns. ...
