This paper presents a system concurrent engineering approach for the development of a mobile Telemetry, Tracking and Control (TT&C) ground station for an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Traditional approaches focus on the product, development organization and the product concepts of operation (CONOPS). In those approaches the overall view of the inherent complexity in the development of a product, its life cycle processes and their performing organizations are not taken into consideration. The system concurrent engineering performs, simultaneously, stakeholder analysis, requirements analysis, functional analysis and implementation architecture analysis for the product, its life cycle processes and their performing organization. From the analysis, requirements and attributes are captured for the product, its life cycle processes organization and the relationships between them are identified. We have concluded that the impact, traceability and hierarchy links promote the anticipation of the life cycle process requirements to the early stages of systems architecting. Late changes are avoided and development costs are dramatically reduced, while satisfaction of stakeholders over the product life cycle is increased.
