  Time Name Description
9:00 am - 10:00 amSatellite Constellation Design

Determine if a future satellite constellation can cover the ocean waters and if adjusting the requirements might lead to better results.

10:00 am - 11:00 amSpacecraft Mission Profile Analysis using STK SOLIS

SOLIS allows users to comprehensively model all spacecraft subsystems and execute full-mission simulations. In this training session, SOLIS will be used to trade spacecraft design parameters and the mission profile to arrive at a solution that meets the overall mission objectives.

11:00 am - 12:00 pmIntroduction to designing satellite trajectories with STK Astrogator

Familiarize yourself with the basic functionality in STK Astrogator and learn how to use it to launch a satellite into orbit. 

1:00 pm - 2:00 pmSTK Fundamentals

Model a real-world satellilte orbit and use STK to determine when you can see it fly overhead at night from your own house.

1:00 pm - 2:00 pmTracking an Aircraft using Aviator and Radar

Model a UAV test to determine if a radar system can track the UAV and if an experimental tethered aerostat can jam the surveillance radar.

2:00 pm - 3:00 pmUsing STK Astrogator for LEO Rendezvous and Proximity Operations

Learn the basic steps in modeling missions of one satellite approaching another already in orbit using STK Astrogator. We will model two satellites already in the same plane, with an “Inspector” trailing a “Target Satellite” in True Anomaly, and will target two in-plane burns to approach and subsequently circumnavigate the target.

3:00 pm - 4:00 pmIntroduction to extending STK through Analysis Workbench

Learn how to use the Vector Geometry Tool to determine an angle between a satellite tracking vector and a sun vector. With the Calculation Tool, create a scalar and condition to determine when the angle falls within a critical value. Using the Time Tool, merge an access and the critical angle to determine optimal tracking times.

4:00 pm - 5:00 pmIntroduction to integrating STK with MATLAB, Python, and Excel

Learn how to interface with STK from other applications, including MATLAB, Python and Excel. We will cover how to control STK and create and manipulate STK Objects through the use of the STK Object Model and external applications.
