The success of the Space robotic missions heavily relies on the performance of many interconnected systems and systems of systems. Deep understanding of the mission requirements, accurate system modelling and effective communication between systems, systems of systems and the outside world are critical to the success of these missions. This paper presents a thorough review of past and current system engineering practices and highlights the importance of Model Based System Engineering (MBSE), where model is a central artifact. This paper presents early work on the implementation of Systems Modelling Language (SysML) for modelling multimodal sensor system, which is part of the project INVERITAS for satellite servicing application. This paper also put forwards SysML based system engineering profile structure. The modular package structure would provide excellent portability and will help to create knowledge base for future projects.
