Abstract: Preliminary analysis and design of a mission has profound effects on its lifecycle; yet, mission engineering is a discipline without unanimous definition and implementation. Current mission design philosophies are inadequate due to disaggregated design methods, incomplete mission phasespaces, exclusion of constitutive relations, curtailed tradespace exploration and unsubstantiated concept solutions. Presented is a new methodology for simultaneously developing, exploring and assessing statistically validated concepts of prospective missions. Stochastic modelling and simulation, providing multivariate mission utility analysis with concurrently integrated tradespace exploration, risk assessment and holistic design facilitates the methodology.
