Giulia Herdies from the Federal University of Santa Maria in Brazil will present how the Capella tool and the Arcadia method are used in the second phase of the project, to develop the concept of this mission.


During this webinar, she will explain:

  • Why the use of MBSE is vital for development of the conceptual phase, by allowing a global understanding of the mission by all involved.
  • How stakeholders' needs and project restrictions were broken down within the operational, functional and physical aspects, which resulted in a preliminary definition of a viable concept solution.


This Webinar will be presented by Giulia Herdies, Aerospace Engineer Student at the Federal University of Santa Maria in Brazil.
