Mission Management & Systems Engineering

SwRI is a leader in Project Management and Systems Engineering for Space Project Management ranging from Instruments to full Mission management.  Since serving as the lead PM and SE institution for the IMAGE mission starting in 1996, SwRI has led the NH Payload, IBEX mission, MMS Payload, and most recently, the CYGNSS mission.  SwRI management processes and practices are consistent with the principles of, and follow all requirements of, NM 7120.5E, NPR 8705.4 and NPR 7123.1B. Our management approach employs tools, methods, and procedures developed and refined at SwRI to manage P/Ls or whole missions (e.g., IMAGE, IBEX, MMS, and CYGNSS).
