Neutron star Interior Composition ExploreR (NICER)

The Instrument/Payload Systems Engineering Branch provides technical leadership for the full life cycle of instruments and payloads development from advanced concepts through implementation. This includes responsibility for advanced design and proposal development including development of innovative new measurement concepts and techniques, preliminary and detailed design and analysis, integration and testing, and support to Operations.

The Branch collaborates with internal and external customers to provide appropriate instrument-enabling activities that are responsive to Goddard’s strategic initiatives. The Branch conceives, plans, implements, and conducts technology programs in order to meet current and future Space and Earth mission needs. This includes teaming with scientists and technologists in all stages of development, from Pre-Phase A research in next generation payloads and instruments to support flight programs.

The Branch provides advanced systems engineering services, including: development of systems engineering tools and interdisciplinary tool sets, such as Integrated Modeling and Model Based Systems Engineering; development and deployment of collaborative environments and capabilities; and development of advanced engineering environments including provision of concurrent design and simulation capabilities. Additionally, the Branch also supports the Integrated Design Center (IDC) and the Mission Design Lab (MDL). The Branch also provides support to systems engineering training and skills development initiatives, such as Systems Engineering Education Development (SEED) and the Agency’s Systems Engineering and Leadership Development Program (SELDP).
