To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, we have recreated the historic mission using our industry-leading trajectory design, mission analysis, and 3D visualization tools.
Based on original NASA documentation, our engineers have built a high-fidelity, eight-day digital mission in Systems Tool Kit (STK). They modeled precise trajectories using STK Astrogator, and built new, glTF models allowing us to visualize the entire mission in remarkable detail.
As part of our celebration of the Apollo 11 50th Anniversary, AGI has recreated a simulation of this historic mission in Systems Tool Kit using Astrogator. AGI Systems Engineer, Austin Claybrook describes in great detail how he recreated the famous Apollo 11 mission from take-off to splash down from old historical records.
This virtual training series will show how we used STK to reconstruct the entire Apollo 11 mission, 50 years after the actual event. The three part series will cover liftoff from Kennedy Space Center through splashdown. You will learn how to use STK, specifically Astrogator, to model a mission to the moon. Recordings of the trainings will be posted here within 24 hours of the conclusion of the event (download the step-by-step instructions).
The first part of this three-part Apollo 11 Recreation series will cover:
The second part of this three-part Apollo 11 Recreation series will focus entirely on the events of July 20, 1969:
