One of the goals of early stage conceptual design is to execute broad trade studies of possible design concepts, evaluating them for their capability to meet minimum requirements, and choosing the one that best satisfies the goals of the project. To support trade space exploration, we have developed the Advanced Trade Space Visualizer (ATSV) that facilitates a design by shopping paradigm, which allows a decision-maker to form a preference a posteriori and use this preference to select a preferred satellite. Design automation has allowed us to implement this paradigm, since a large number of designs can be synthesized in a short period of time. The ATSV uses multi-dimensional visualization techniques, preference shading, and Pareto frontier display to visualize satellite trade spaces.
