HOSTmi started to build and operate the first space mobility web platform matching between carrier assets and hosted payload requirements in order to introduce highly needed innovation in a field that is becoming increasingly important. In order to make this service available to a broad range of stakeholders, and to streamline the requirements-engineering within NewSpace, we have been working on digital mapping of all relevant space mission requirements, semantic standardization, semi-automated requirements-engineering processing, and the development of intelligent requirements matching algorithms. We consider this current platform called miSMART as an intermediate step towards our long-term goal with the company: offering a web-based Digital Twin as a Service (DTaaS) Platform.
Our goal is to provide a web-based (https) environment where space industry players can configure and operate Digital Twins of their assets associated with the respective lifecycle position. This is done using a pre-configured architecture and digital environment that enables a so-called “Digital Twin as a Service” (DTaaS). This is intended to overcome cross-organizational boundaries and increase overall efficiency and reduce process and engineering risks of a space mission.
