WELCOME to the IDC

The Integrated Design Center (IDC) is a human and technology resource providing rapid space system analysis and conceptual designs. Skilled engineers and scientists utilize the IDC's collaborative process and sophisticated tools to produce detailed space missions, remote sensing instruments, and/or technology application concepts.

The Center has two dedicated facilities where design teams and customers collaborate in an environment that promotes rapid development and efficient trade studies of space system architectures, applications and concepts. The Mission Design Lab (MDL) offers conceptual end-to-end mission design and analysis while the Instrument Design Lab (IDL) offers conceptual design and analysis of instrument systems.

At the completion of a session, the design team presents its findings to the customer. These findings typically include functional systems, concepts, system requirements, operational scenarios, risk areas, estimated costs, trades and assumptions, and recommended future work.
