Supporting the Concurrent Design Facility (CDF)
ESA's Data Systems Division of TEC is constantly providing technical support in the field of avionics and data management architecture to the CDF.
The Concurrent Design Facility (CDF) is a state-of-the-art facility equipped with a network of computers, multimedia devices and software tools, which allows a team of experts from several disciplines to apply the concurrent engineering method to the design of future space missions. It facilitates a fast and effective interaction of all disciplines involved, ensuring consistent and high-quality results in a much shorter time.

Here is a list of the recent CDF activities supported by our team of engineers:
AIM - Asteroid Impact Mission
IXV EVO - Assessment of Intermediate eXperimental Vehicle Evolution
LOFT - Large Observatory for X-Ray Timing
