Collaborative Assistive Tool To Enable Novel Solutions (CATTENS) Phase 2

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

CATTENS is a software application that is being developed to provide capabilities for Model-Based Engineering (MBE) and Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE).

The primary goal of CATTENS is to support early mission concept development in the Goddard Mission Design Lab (MDL), a collaborative engineering environment at Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC).  CATTENS is also intended to support CubeSat projects and other flight projects, especially in their early design phases.

The CATTENS architecture includes (1) a desktop GUI client tool with networking capabilities; and (2) a set of web services utilizing a message bus architecture to support collaboration.  The initial set of CATTENS services includes a model library service and a system design repository service.  The model library service enables engineers to save and reuse various types of models for systems, subsystems, and vendor products.  The system design repository service supports collaborative mission and system design and versioning.
