– Depending on interest, this might become a thrust area for
the chapter with additional actions and activities
– Note – Integration challenges and opportunities are not
just limited to ‘complex’ systems
• Format –
– Introduction
– Panelist Presentations

AIAA Initiative
for Addressing Complex Systems Integration
• ASI-WG Charter - The Aerospace Systems Integration Working Group
is a forum to promote and contribute to aerospace systems integration
across the spectrum of applications ranging from traditional systems to
complex systems and systems of systems.
• Status
 January, 2012: Aerospace Systems Integration-Working Group (ASI-WG)
proposed and formed
 May, 2012: AIAA TAC officially approved the establishment of ASI-WG
• Activities (January 2012 to Present)
 Monthly Teleconference, Yearly Face-to-Face Meeting
 Developing AIAA G135: Guide to Aerospace Systems Integration
 Conducting/participating in Panel discussions (CASE, New Horizon,
ASM, etc)
 Presentation to AIAA TCs and PCs
 INCOSE participation

Supports AIAA’s vision to address one of the most challenging issues facing our community, specifically complex
systems integration. We often excel at developing individual technologies, but fail when attempting to integrate these,
on schedule and budget, into operating systems.

Now known as the
JSpOC Mission System
(JMS)
Key Objectives –
Collecting & integrating disparate information to create situational
pictures
Creating space tasking framework
Complexities: Collaborative architecture composed of
multiple systems, with varying missions, stakeholders,
lifecycle phases….
