Introduction

Every neoteric year, an assortment of actors, namely Space Academics, Space Agencies, and Space Companies are proposing space missions with increasing focus on maximizing the reliability of satellites, and spacecrafts. The Satellite, or Spacecraft Design Engineer and the systems engineering teams concurrently conduct a series of trade-off studies on various commercial-off-the-shelf components to design a satellite, or spacecraft. The electrical interfaces of the selected components, and standard products are usually customized following the fully functional requirements to exhibit adequate capacity, dimensions, and mass for typical satellite, or spacecraft configurations while also providing the performance necessary to complete the Mission. Standardized interfaces hardly exist and hence, space systems are highly customized systems. The results of planned redesign of the system come to fruition with increasing costs, risks of space missions, and time of satellite manufacturing. A space company based in Darmstadt, Germany, addresses this insufficiency in standardization and introduces an universal adapter to accelerate the design of a satellite, or spacecraft with higher efficiency of the systems engineering activities.

Focus

An analysis of the first satellite subsystem adapter is presented with a primary focus on its capability to transform incompatible off-the-shelf components into plug-and-play for satellite manufacturers. Furthermore, the significance of incorporating standardization into satellite systems, or spacecraft systems for both the crewed or uncrewed space missions is presented. In addition, an existing relationship between the standardization and operations in extreme environments and situations, and the standardization and coaching or training activities of personnel is presented. To address the significance of incorporating standardization for crewed space missions, an existing relationship with the field of Space Psychology is presented with a primary focus on the capacity, capability and efficiency of personnel to engage in extreme environments and situations and ensure safe habitability.
