With the ever advancing trends towards more highly complex proposed data sensing systems coupled with satellite onboard distributed computing systems, there is a need for sophisticated, yet simple-to-use methods and tools for modeling the workload capacities of the data processing components of these systems well before actual implementation. These data processing components will receive data from different types of space-based sensor systems such as starers, spinners, linear scanners, and step starers. In order to aid systems engineers in the design of these advanced systems, a number of commercially available program modeling tools were reviewed, but for our specific purpose, one modeling tool was found to be most effective for modeling and analyzing different onboard processing architecture configurations/concepts for future space-based satellite surveillance systems. This tool, for our purpose, was found to provide flexibility in designing space-based surveillance systems that promote survivability, endurability, and data integrity and to identify and eliminate many potential system performance problems before implementation.
