Abstract
The development of space-borne Electro-Optical (EO) sensors for both NASA and the DOD is currently overrunning initial cost and schedule estimates by 2x to 3x, in an environment where Congressional review and even cancellation of these programs is triggered by more modest overruns of 20% to 30%. A substantial improvement in the cycle time of development for these systems is needed while retaining adequate sensor performance levels with high reliability. Concurrent engineering practices promise significant reductions in project cost and delivery time.
