Section Personnel

The Mechanical Systems Analysis Group ...

    • Mechanical aspects of multidisciplinary systems analyses.
    • Structural portion of combined Structural Thermal Optical (STOP) analyses.
    • Research and development to provide analytical capabilities for use in the analysis and evaluation of advanced systems.
    • Senior system analysts and analytical task team discipline support to GSFC managed systems.
    • Advanced general purpose hardware and software capabilities to support the digital analysis needs of the Branch.
    • 3-D graphical simulations of mechanical systems for a variety of studies including robotic motion studies, field of view interaction, mechanism operation, subassembly integration, vision system verification, as well as supporting promotional videos.
    • Plans and procedures for analytically monitoring system development and verification efforts.
    • Necessary mechanical analyses to ensure that all aspects of the system are compatible and will perform within specification.
    • The generation of models, the methods for analysis, the techniques for model verification and validation, and the administration of the computer systems needed to perform the work.
    Is Responsible
    • For the definition and maintenance of the standard GSFC NASTRAN Program.
