The technological challenges that companies in the space domain are facing today are becoming more and more complex. On the one hand complexity of the tasks that need to be performed by the new generation of spacecrafts is increasing. On the other hand, the development needs to be cost and time efficient to be able to compete against new players in this domain, such as SpaceX. To deal with these challenges new development tools and methods are needed. In scope of this work we propose a model-based approach for future spacecrafts. We integrated this approach into a state-of-the-art model-based tool and applied it onto an industrial case-study to show proof-of-concept.
