9 9 Space Avionics Open Interface Architecture (SAVOIR)* SAVOIR: an undertaking led by space European Agencies and Industries aiming at promoting Space Avionics based on Open Interfaces In its first phase, SAVOIR has federated the space avionics community around the concept of reference architectures, standard interfaces, and generic specifications SAVOIR second phase includes the refinement of reference architectures, the elaboration of a product portfolio, and the production of two sets of generic specifications The maturity and completeness of the SAVOIR concept will be assessed by building lab demonstrators integrating a consistent set of items *From ESA Website (http://www.congrex.nl/11c22/)

10 10 Business Case from Cost Analysis Aerospace Corp modeled US Satellite Market to quantify savings on cost of bus –Model included capture rate, technology insertion, obsolescence, integration complexity, organizational complexity, etc. –Model reviewed twice by ODNI CAIG Findings: –Over 17 years and 442 satellites Savings was $18.8B (29%) Payback Period was 9 Years –Commercial space has the greatest savings due to high volume (learning) –Government savings reduced by low volume (learning) and organizational complexity Not all SUMO benefits were monetized –Net present value through ease of reconfigurability should increase

11 11 …a word about the Cost Model Modeled full plug and play –Industry has made clear they are not ready for full plug and play; SUMO cost analysis will differ but this model gives a first approximation of savings Modeled 5 to 7 years satellite bus acquisition –Industry feedback indicates 2 to 3 years is reasonable…would accelerate crossover point Modeled the costs of two full satellites –New approach models delta costs on top of funded project…reduces upfront NRE NRO not modeled to gain learning from commercial industry –Commercial industry buying 20 satellites per year Modeled increased organizational conflict as more participants engaged and provided input –Reduced savings by 30%; realistic for the first decade but reasonable to expect conflicts to be resolved over time (based on MilSTD-1553 experience) An Average of 29% Savings on the Cost of a Bus is Significant

12 12 Potential Advantages Beyond Cost Savings Mission Assurance Increased Cost Sharing with Standard Interfaces for Hosted Payload Multi-mission Flexibility; Mission Reconfigurability Reduced Build Schedule Plug-n-play Enabled Innovation and Technology Insertion Enhanced Monitoring and Anomaly Identification and Resolution Higher Data Rate Potential for New Capabilities and Additional Revenue Stream Industries Which Standardize Interfaces Often see Growth and Improved Performance

13 13 Deputy Administrator, Ch Eng, Ch Tech, GSFC Administrator are very supportive. Representative to CCSDS. Iterating on SUMO Transition Plan, developed SpaceAGE Bus and Core Flight Executive Goal: understand policy & budget drivers, and industrial base policy issues. Government Buyers & Stakeholders: Focus on affordability, responsiveness and ability to maintain programs of record during budget driven era. Goal: understand policy & budget drivers, and industrial base policy issues. Government Buyers & Stakeholders: Focus on affordability, responsiveness and ability to maintain programs of record during budget driven era. NASA Policy DoD Government Outreach and Support IC AT&L is very supportive. Helping SUMO propose for Title-III funds. AFSPC/CV is a big fan of interface standards. SMC/XR is developing industry-driven MONA (a part of SUMO); iterating SUMO transition plan. AFRL created SPA. SMC also asked prime to investigate universal components PDDNI and ADNI/AT&F full support. Released CIG language. NRO is looking for components which could be universalized; conducted modular bus study. OSTP supporting SUMO. NSC and OMB are very supportive. DoC (including ITA and NIST) are engaged.

14 14 Collaboration with NASA, SMC, & NRO Seeking strategies to influence industry to provide modular, open networked space capabilities Developing approaches to overcome key challenges Utilize innovative acq approaches and small, strategic investments Business case must be acceptable to industry Step-in/step-out influence Goal of reducing cost on spacecraft w/o negatively impacting science return, system reliability, operations Adopting an approach to leverage standards and create commonality in software, hardware, interfaces and tools Approach is vendor agnostic, allows for evolution and technology insertion A modular bus with standard, open interfaces will drive down NRE A Unified Mindset with Collaborative Interaction Growing Across the Government

15 15 - Potential improvement on Return on Investment and Net Present Value - Also support buying services versus systems; Support hosted payloads - Encourage commercial best practices Interaction through Request for Information (RFI) on FedBizOps, several SIA & AIA sponsored workshops, conferences, site visits, telecoms and questionnaires Satellite Operators: Support - Concerned about Reduced Profit; Suggested FFP acquisitions - Prefer to promote proprietary solutions; will comply if govt requires SUMO - Need government funding to compensate for long term return (~ 9 years) - Very supportive of Common Qual Environment; ready to engage - Also support Stable requirements; Risk tolerance Industry Outreach and Support Primes & Integrators: Conditionally Support Component Manufacturers: Strongly Support - Stabilize the industrial base; lower NRE; improve competitiveness - Common processes (testing) for hardware will expand margins - Avoid commoditization; prefer implementation on new products - Interface standards reduce barriers to market entry - Somewhat biased; confirmed that SUMO is technically feasible and can reduce costs and assembly times Satellite Integration Subs: Strongly Support - Buy services versus systems; learn from commercial buyers - More dialogue with industry End to End (E2E) Service Providers: Ambivalent Industry unanimously noted that government commitment and funding is needed.

16 16 Why Many in Industry Support SUMO* Bus design with interoperable components allow design emphasis on payload technologies Suppliers can increase their production rates, margins and performance Common qualification environments diminishes inventory risk, and improves quality Increased use of fixed priced contracts for bus allows primes more latitude for controlling margins Simplifies bus integration which allows innovation, reduces schedules and increases Net Present Value Enhances global responsiveness through participation in international standards processes Addresses cyber security risk Public/private partnerships partially mitigate corporate upfront capital risk Realistic, logical transition plan uses natural break-in points for gradual introduction Interfaces will be carefully standardized to protect intellectual property and promote innovation Step-in/step-out approach encourages industry-consensus standards and product differentiation 16 A modular, open architecture such as SUMO presents a Space Industry Dilemma *Based on interviews and written responses

17 17 Notional SUMO Transition Plan The Transition Plan is notional because it was created by a small, experienced team; not yet by the executing agencies –Comprised of former Assistant Secretary of the Air Force (Acquisition), Deputy Under Secretary for Space, Director of Space Transportation (NASA/HQ), Director of SIGINT Acquisition (NRO), VP of Space Systems, NASA Programs (Industry) Proposes Executive Coordination by Space Industrial Base Council –Comprised of DoD(AT&L), DNI/AT&F, USAF, NASA, NRO, MDA, NOAA Phased to achieve early gains with regionalized qualification environment while defining Architecture of Standards for interfaces Establishes role for certification agent and certification process Progresses from interface definition to interface development to bench test to demo flight to program of record Plan tied to FYDP budget cycle; budget profiles aligned to sources –Proposed sources include DPA Title III, Industry, and Executing Agents

23 23 Space Avionics Open Interface Architecture (SAVOIR)* SAVOIR: an undertaking led by space European Agencies and Industries aiming at promoting Space Avionics based on Open Interfaces In its first phase, SAVOIR has federated the space avionics community around the concept of reference architectures, standard interfaces, and generic specifications. All these elements are expected to favor the existence of compatible Suppliers product lines. The major outcomes of the initial phase are R&D roadmaps and a prioritized list of building blocks. SAVOIR second phase includes the refinement of reference architectures, the elaboration of a product portfolio, and the production of two sets of generic specifications covering on-board computer (OBC) and data concentrator (RTU) functions. The portfolio includes also many items related to architectures, communication protocols, data handling services, software libraries, sensors, actuators together with underlying enabling technologies. Each item could lead to a generic specification, validation through prototyping and eventually product(s) with an attached availability date for a given Technology Readiness Level [TRL]. The maturity and completeness of the SAVOIR concept will be assessed by building lab demonstrators integrating a consistent set of items. The selection criteria for those items will be driven by their maturity at a given date with the particular goal of demonstrating their readiness for project use. *From ESA Website (http://www.congrex.nl/11c22/)

24 24 Tenets for Success Leverage Existing Standards and Think Global –Use existing standards to the extent practical (based upon industry consensus). –Examples: Space Modular and P&P standards are being developed by AFRL, ESA, NASA and industry. Also Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS) standards body has made significant progress on Electronic Data Sheets (EDSs). –Short-term: Start with US Stakeholders; Long-term: Establish international standards Space Industry Consensus –Industry consensus for universalized component interface standards and common qualification environment standards through existing standards bodies –Include participation from U.S. space agencies, commercial satellite operators, spacecraft primes, and component manufacturers. Avoid Commoditization – Protect Intellectual Property –Focus on data bus interface with sub-systems & components. Avoid defining inside the box where unique designs and intellectual property reside. –Allow vendors to differentiate capabilities while maintaining standard interfaces. –Avoid innovation lock out – a common problem for standards that over reach. Natural Break-In Points for Gradual Introduction –Opportunistic insertion of SUMO into natural break in points – where primes or component manufacturers are developing new products. –Introduce SUMO early during the concept/design phase – avoids disruption of existing solutions, architectures, sunk costs and vested equities.

25 25 Potential Advantages Beyond Cost Savings BenefitSatellite Investor or UserUS Space Industrial Base (SIB) National Security Space Stakeholders Mission Assurance As P&P bus and CCs become heritage -- they will enhance reliability and overall mission assurance. Lower risk profiles decrease cost of insurance and improves global competitiveness. NS often seeks high levels of mission assurance via heritage P&P and CCs. Increased Cost Sharing P&P buses are flexible and will encourage hosted payloads/ride sharing. Hosted PLs will enhance affordability of space to a wide range of users. Short term some space companies will win & others will lose as space clients begin to seek out ride sharing agreements & resource sharing opportunities. Fiscal austerity may require that stakeholders economize and share resources to meet budget constraints. Multi-mission Flexibility P&P bus -- mission flexibility exists within certain physical limits of power and mass. This benefit is not monetized in our analysis. US SIB could become more competitive internationally as CC increases manufacturing economies of scale and P&P bus allows for mission flexibility. NS stakeholders could benefit from flexibility in a world where threats and priorities constantly change. Reduced Build Schedule Partially Monetized -- P&P and CCs allow for compressing time between concept and delivery and ensures deployed systems are current. Ability to respond quickly to changing market priorities and customers requests. Defense & IC stakeholders seek new ways to respond quickly in new theaters. P&P Enabling Innovation Partially Monetized - P&P platforms allow for easier and less expensive technology insertion. Payload manufacturers can focus on innovation rather than NRE. Yes - US SIB outperforms competitors and regains space technology leadership Yes – NS stakeholders may use P&P platforms as test beds, prototypes and even replacements for expensive larger systems. Future Capabilities – Enhanced Monitoring A P&P bus generates Xteds data which can be used for better processing & detection for anomaly resolution. Longer term, a P&P bus is smart enough to handle autonomous operation. Enhanced Monitoring capability could provide competitive advantage to US SIB versus global competitors. A better understanding and ability to quickly identify anomalies enhances space situational awareness (SSA). Future Capabilities – High Data Rate P&P bus could provide additional revenue streams as the P&P buss higher data rates allow for more bandwidth and as a result - additional revenues. Establishing well defined, high data rate interfaces within the spacecraft avionics could be a new capability enabler, and a competitive advantage. Also could attract global clients with established standards for higher data rates. It is possible that NS stakeholders may demand high bandwidth and rates for certain missions/applications. CC = CQE Components; NS = National Security PL = Pay Load; P&P = Plug & Play; SIB = Space Industrial Base; Industries Which Standardize Interfaces Often see Growth and Improved Performance

26 26 DPA Title III SUMO Strengthen the economic and technological competitiveness of the US defense industrial base - Reduced component costs or higher vendor profit margins - Increased economies of scale - Reduced barriers to entry; increased innovation - Performance-based competition - Balances ESAs efforts to standardize Reduce US dependency on foreign sources of supply for vital materials and technologies - Guards against increased reliance - Innovations increase demand - Capabilities transferable to commercial industry - In concert with ITAR reform, expands the market place Increase the supply, improve the quality, and reduce the cost of advanced materials and technologies - Develops industry-consensus interface standards - Lower NRE/higher reuse; improved quality - Economies of scale Create, maintain, expand, protect, restore, or modernize the production capabilities of domestic suppliers whose technologies and products are critical to the nations security - Ease of satellite bus reconfigurability - Improved Net Present Value; quicker integration - Interoperability of like components - Modernizes the industrys ability to design, manufacture and integrate satellites Industry needs government support- Business case doesnt close w/o government early investment - Profitability cross-over point – 9 years SUMO Modernizes the Space Industry

27 27 SUMOMIL-STD-1553 SUMO proposes the development and implementation of a universal Architecture of Standards that will define the electrical and data interfaces for a satellite bus MIL-STD-1553 is a military standard published by the US DoD that describes the method of communication and the electrical interface requirements for subsystems connected to the data bus MIL-STD-1553 published as a US Air Force standard originally designed for use with military avionics. First used on the F-16 fighter aircraft Like 1553, SUMO will evolve starting with modular architecture requirements for satellite avionics MIL-STD-1553A published MIL-STD-1553B published Multiple designs quickly followed including the F-18 and AH-64 Apache MIL-STD-1553B released as a tri-services (Air Force, Army and Navy) standard The SUMO industry consensus architecture of standards will develop within an international standards organization SUMO will focus on the interoperability of the interfaces to provide flexibility and reliability MIL-STD-1553B adopted by NATO 1993 – MIL-STD-1553B validated for use in acquisition Seven change notices to the standard have been published since 1978 Electrical interfaces explicitly specified to assure compatibility between designs by different manufacturers Flexibility without creating new designs for each new user Expanded international adoption into Europe and Asia Following in the footsteps of aircraft pioneers, space industrialists are now ready for a more mature business model where expensive custom built space systems give way to universal satellite manufacturing standards MIL-STD-1553 TODAY MIL-STD-1553 has evolved into the predominant, internationally accepted networking standard for the integration of military platforms MIL-STD-1553 has expanded beyond its traditional aircraft domain to encompass applications for combat vehicles, ships, satellites, missiles, and the International Space Station

28 28 Anecdotes from Industry Cost: Two manufacturers have stated that custom components are twice as expensive as standard components Focus on New Products: A component manufacturer stated that their existing products are already configurable to seven different primes – however, new products represent a green field opportunity to demonstrate interface standardization. Opportunity Costs and NRE: Many component manufacturers have stated that spending engineering resources for customizing interfaces is an opportunity cost – they would prefer to apply resources towards performance and innovation. Competitive Advantage: A component manufacturer indicated that they must design their products to fit almost 20 different interfaces. Their overseas competitor, on the other hand, has fully automated their production line – building to only two interfaces

29 29 Expanding international market drives the benefit to follow global standards Future orders are not fully accounted for – beyond Global Market Trends

Variables include: capture rate, integration complexity, design compression, organizational complexity, rate of obsolescence and frequency of technology insertion, planned build quantity, and program length. Results indicate that billions of dollars can be saved.
