The objective of this project is to design the system for EQUARS mission and microsatellite platform. The main objectives can be defined as: Identify the mission concepts; ; Develop concepts of operations and system - architectures, compare them with respect to requisites and mission objectives, and determine the levels of uncertainty and risk; Establish planning systems engineering, project management and product assurance; Establish the function tree; Analyze the technical and programmatic feasibility of possible concepts by identifying constraints on implementation, costs, planning, organization, operations, maintenance, production and disposal; Identify critical technologies; Quantify and characterize critical elements for technical and economic feasibility of the mission, proposed concepts of operations and technical solutions, including philosophy of models and philosophy of verification , to be refined in the next phase of this project; Develop risk analysis; Prepare specifications and technical documentation for the subsystems; Start the Pre-development of critical technologies and subsystems areas of design to reduce development risks. General requirements must be met and specific requirements regarding 'stage O, A and B, to the PDR configuration level related to lower hierarchical level of the system, related to several standards in the ECSS system - European Cooperation for Space Standardization.
