Feasibilities studies (CDF)


Based on past successful experiments, the advantage of multibody software has also been made available to ESA Concurrent Design Facility (CDF) studies. Indeed, since CDF applies the concurrent engineering method to the design of future space missions, the use of multibody software is a key tool for analysing performances at system level, while taking into account simultaneously several subsystems.
