Abstract : The Reusable Software Architecture for Spacecraft (RSAS) project has as an objective, the of an engineering 'Workbench' which will partially automate the production of flight software. The Workbench will house a generic flight software domain architecture which will be tailorable to mission requirements. Guided by the tailored domain architecture, the Workbench will assemble reusable software components to synthesize a mission flight application. This report provides an overview of the flight system domain analysis performed in support of the development of reusable flight software Eight diverse flight systems were surveyed and analyzed to identify common functional attributes requirements. The Shlaer-Mellor Object-Oriented Analysis methodology was used to guide the domain and the development of domain models. A generic flight system domain architecture was developed to the functional commonalities identified in the survey.
