BEST USE OF KNOWLEDGE IN A SPACE PROGRAM - Managing the Correlated Technologies

Miriam B. Alves, Ana Marlene Morais

Abstract

This paper presents an ongoing work being developed at the Institute of Aeronautics and Space (IAE) to provide a process and a system to support the knowledge management of new technologies applied in the conception and development of the Brazilian Satellite Launcher Program. This management is not only necessary to organize the actual research efforts but also to identify communalities and necessities for strategic planning of future research projects and development activities. The results of the research projects are usually new technologies that ought to be employed in the development of the Launcher Program. The proposed knowledge management system will not only allow the assessment of these new technologies but will also help in the definition and planning of the research topics in each important area of this multidisciplinary program, according to the Institute strategic goals and space mission.
