Team X

Team X is a cross-functional multidisciplinary team of engineers that utilizes concurrent engineering methodologies to complete rapid design, analysis and evaluation of mission concept designs.

This advanced design team of experienced flight-project engineers is co-located in the Project Design Center to complete architecture, mission, and instrument design studies in real time.

The Project Design Center is a state-of-the-art facility consisting of networked workstations, a supporting data management infrastructure, large interactive graphic displays, computer modeling and simulation tools, historical data repositories and a shared project model that the design team updates.
