Satellite orbit analysis

Define the satellite's orbital properties, visualize the orbit, view ground tracks, and calculate eclipse durations that affect power subsystem sizing.

Orbit Design
  • + Define the satellite orbit
  • + Account for sun beta angles
  • + Simulate the orbit between a start and end date
  • + Account for J2 perturbations
  • + Visualize the satellite orbit in 3D space
Groundtracks
  • + Vizualize satellite groundtracks
  • + See global coverage
Eclipse
  • + Calculate average and maximum eclipse durations
  • + Few total number of eclipses that effects battery cycles
  • + View the eclipse profile plot

Select your satellite's components

Define the orbit of the satellite, view ground tracks and calculate eclipse durations that will affect power sizing.

Launch System

Define your satellite's launch system - choose from adapter rings, CubeSat dispensers, or custom options to determine your spacecraft's mass allocation.

Satellite Operational Modes

Set operational modes of the spacecraft, operational modes are used to describe specific states the spacecraft will expereince over the course of the mission.

Model Library

Define your satellite's launch system - choose from adapter rings, CubeSat dispensers, or custom options to determine your spacecraft's mass allocation.

Link Models Together
