Episode 6: An Agile Odyssey

An Agile Odyssey

Government agencies seek to accelerate capabilities by launching competition that aims to create rapid fielding and prototyping to meet emerging needs. A recent launch challenge has three teams competing for an opportunity to win prizes by rapidly launching a payload into orbit in early 2020. Rapid fielding and prototyping are often enabled by effective digital twinning and agile solutions that fuel modern simulation and training efforts for everyone from the design engineers and maintainers to spacecraft pilots. This episode covers how agile development is aiding the development of new satellite programs.
