NASA Office of Logic Design

A scientific study of the problems of digital engineering for space flight systems,
with a view to their practical solution.


3.1 Design Tradeoffs

The design shall operate satisfactorily in the mission environment and shall minimize susceptibility to factors inherent in the operational environment and the vehicle installation, including various interfaces and design tradeoffs between the computer and the spacecraft, the spacecraft environment, and interference sources. Demonstration shall be made, by a suitable combination of analytical and experimental studies, that the design is entirely suitable for its intended mission. Recommended practices for the factors which can be used to evaluate the design tradeoffs (usually on a qualitative basis) are discussed in section 4.1.
