DARPA System F6 program, Technical Area 1, FRACSAT: An Integrated Lifecycle Decision Support Toolkit for Fractionated Spacecraft Architectures. Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) and its partners will design, develop, and deliver an integrated lifecycle decision-support toolkit for fractionated spacecraft architectures. When completed, the FRACSAT toolkit will enable space mission designers to rapidly generate feasible mission architectures, select optimal design solutions given programmatic uncertainty, justify the business case using mission-relevant cost and benefit metrics, and adapt to unforeseen events or changes during the program lifecycle for maximum mission impact.
