What about software? I never heard it mentioned. How does the space catalog address software?

Actually, we did discuss software briefly.  Since flight software is included with each electronic item, some portion of an independently estimated software cost should be removed from the result.  The separate TruePlanning for Software catalog can be used to estimate development and COTS new/modified/reused/deleted code, sized via multiple approaches:  SLOC, function point, use cases as well as via a Functional Sizing calculator.
