About Software Engineering Group

Following the recognition that development of space flight software is a discipline quite distinct from that of data analysis software, and that an increasing number of flight hardware projects include a major element of onboard software, a laboratory wide flight software engineering group was established at MSSL at the end of 1992. The purpose of the group is to maintain and improve the quality of flight software, Mission Performance Simulator (MPS), Electrical Ground Support Equipment (EGSE) and test software via a coordinated and structured approach. Since then the group has supported flight, MPS, EGSE and test software developments for the following space projects:
