Vehicle Systems

Johnson Space Center has expertise in the design of vehicle systems, combining structural design, analysis, and testing; dynamic loads analysis; and performance and materials evaluations. Specialty areas such as reliable pyrotechnics, power systems and power quality, fluids management, battery performance, cockpit designs, radiation-hardened avionics, and reliable software are integrated at the vehicle level for optimal performance at the system level.

We are able to integrate the disciplines and unique design requirements, including the operation of the space vehicle. We can rapidly prototype conceptual spacecraft cockpit designs to explore cockpit concepts and evaluate designs. Although we are known for our contributions to aerospace exploration, we can support a variety of commercial applications.
