Detailed Text For Service: Architecture

As implied by the name, Arrowhead System Engineering provides services covering three System Engineering disciplines:

  1. Architecture Definition;
  2. Requirements Development, Traceability, and Management;
  3. Technical Planning, Execution, and Management

Architecture definition is the process and methods for decomposing system requirements into a final implementation and providing the traceability to the verification and validation to assure a successful system implementation.

Additionally, learning sessions relating to the engineering process and the Department of Defense Architectural Framework (DoDAF) are offered in a classroom environment or as a....

Arrowhead System Engineering specializes in real time data systems, with unique expertise in fault tolerant systems.

Advances in electronics over the past half century have produced major improvements in the power and flexibility of personal computer systems. In general, current avionics systems for space applications typically have not leveraged these COTS advantages. Recently, there has been a trend toward utilization of commercial bus interconnects, primarily VME, cPCI, PCIe, and VPX. Communication lines have migrated to from 1553B to SpaceWire and Ethernet (including AFDX and Time Triggered Ethernet) high speed interconnect. New concepts featuring Flight Computers derived from commercial airline applications and embedded FPGA processing....
