In today's crowded space environment, satellite operators need an accurate, real-time, mission modeling platform to plan safe and efficient maneuvers that occur over the lifespan of their mission. Discover how you can use STK to plan rendezvous and proximity operations. Using an example mission to inspect a damaged GEO satellite, we'll discuss: - Designing missions with Astrogator - Addressing complex mission constraints with STK Analysis Workbench - Using the STK API with MATLAB to verify requirements Can't attend?

Encore - Parallel Computing Options to Accelerate Eng Output (scheduled for EUR)
Jul 22nd10:30 am - 11:30 am (UTC +2)
Online
One of the key components of digital mission engineering (DME) is integrating models — persistently, across a system’s life cycle — on a common platform. Simulating all your models and their interactions with a DME approach creates mountains of data and requires numerous, complex computations. Of course, one of the primary objectives of DME is to produce information quickly, so you can iterate and adjust without getting behind schedule. It’s not hard to see the problem. How do you get the fidelity you need in the time you have? In this webinar, we’ll discuss the types of DME processes that can be accelerated and your options for doing so — particularly, computing in parallel.

In the world of digital engineering, it's a rare-to-never moment that you find exactly the right software product for your needs. Usually, you're forced to choose between a tool that doesn't quite fit or a tool that offers too much. Both options are frustrating and inefficient. You might be tempted to develop your own tool, but you're probably underestimating what that will take. Building a custom solution squanders effort in the form of non-recurring engineering development, quality assurance, and future maintenance. With user interface plugins for Systems Tool Kit (STK), you can design focused workflows to do just about any job. Take full advantage of STK's broad platform of capabilities without cluttering the scene with functions that you don't need. Limit your testing and maintenance to your plugin while AGI maintains and improves everything else. In this webinar, we'll explore the development acceleration possibilities of this extensive option for STK.

Lunar Trajectory Planning On-Demand [self-paced] Online Access Resources

John Carrico and Mike Loucks from Space Exploration Engineering join Jim Woodburn from AGI to discuss different trajectories and strategies for getting to the moon. They cover Apollo-type transfers, transfer to a Near Rectilinear Lunar Orbit like those being considered for the Lunar Gateway, and ballistic lunar transfers that could be useful for transferring cargo to the lunar system. Descriptions of the trajectories are augmented with discussion of force modeling and navigation considerations.

Accelerating the Planning Stage of Rendezvous & Proximity Operations Missions On-Demand [self-paced] Online Access Resources

AGI technical director Doug Cather will discuss how you can radically improve the efficiency of Rendezvous and Proximity Operations (RPO) mission planning. Because of their complexity and the exceptional precision that they require, RPO missions can be plagued with inefficiencies in the planning stage. A digital mission engineering (DME) approach can accelerate this stage. Doug will demonstrate the advanced capabilities — such as spacecraft trajectory modeling and maneuver planning — that the STK Astrogator module adds to our DME platform, Systems Tool Kit (STK).

Revisiting Apollo 13 in STK On-Demand [self-paced] Online Access Resources

50 years ago, the flight and ground crews of Apollo 13 overcame formidable obstacles to return three imperiled astronauts safely to Earth after an onboard explosion. 20 years ago, AGI and our partner, Space Exploration Engineering (SEE), analyzed the mission data. What we found was startling.

Why lunar missions are different (than LEO/GEO missions) On-Demand [self-paced] Online Access Resources

Lunar missions differ from missions in the near-Earth environment in many ways. This webinar will provide an overview of the challenges of designing and operating lunar missions, including:

  • the use of different reference frames
  • trajectory design options
  • the effects of the geometry in the Earth-Moon system on spacecraft visibility and navigation.

Please join John Carrico and Mike Loucks of Space Exploration Engineering and Jim Woodburn from AGI for the first in a series of webinars covering lunar missions.

Orbit Determination using GNSS On-Demand [self-paced] Online Access Resources

Tom Johnson, Vice President of Innovation at AGI, discusses options for using onboard GNSS/GPS receivers to determine a spacecraft’s orbit. He reviews the pros and cons of the data processing options that a satellite operator has with a typical satellite, including examples of real-world data sets.

Introduction to Test & Evaluation Tool Kit (TETK) On-Demand [self-paced] Online Access Resources

AGI systems engineers Mo Syed and Lauren McManus talk with Adam Pederson who demonstrates AGI's Test and Evaluation Tool Kit (TETK). TETK is used by the flight and evaluation industry, but is also great of any STK user with external data that they want to bring into an STK scenario for analysis and visualization.

  • Used in any domain for any STK object, not just aircraft
  • Flexible data import and quick analysis
  • Pre-flight or post-flight analysis

Adam walks through everything needed to get up and running with TETK, from loading initial data to using radar return data within STK's 3D globe.
