Advances in Satellite Manufacturing

For the first time in the history of satellite manufacturing, assembly line techniques are in use to fulfill the large numbers of planned constellations. Irrespective of this increased demand, several technologies have been implemented to improve upon traditional manufacturing techniques. How are advances in components, subsystems, sensors, data analytics, and automation affecting satellite manufacturing? Production times have also been reduced to respond to customer demand. Augmented reality, CAD software, and additive manufacturing all affect the manufacturing process. How do new ideas regarding mission assurance impact the rigorous manufacturing protocols and procedures that were defined in the recent past?
