For some time, there has been a strong will to start a national space program in Turkey. However, when technological, financial and human resources of Turkey are considered, Turkish Space Program (TSP) appears to be a challenge for the nation. To commit to achieve such a challenging goal, a solid systematic approach to all aspects of the space program must be devised and thoroughly applied. In this paper, we developed a systems engineering process model to apply throughout the total space program at each level of abstraction from the national level to component level. Furthermore, the evaluation criteria incorporated into national level is given, a set of systems engineering activities needed to manage the total space program is defined and some tools like total work breakdown structure and knowledge-base growth model to define the scope of the national space program is explained. As a conclusion, it is emphasized further that allocation of each element of the space program to relevant national organizations according to their capabilities is crucial for the success of the national space program.
