Event Details

This is the second of two overviews of STK. The first explored its application to space missions.

Originally known as Satellite Tool Kit (STK), System Tool Kit began as a tool for orbit analysis and mission planning, and is perhaps the most widely used tool for these purposes. It has since expanded into physics-based modeling for a variety of space, air, and ground scenarios.

Acquisition of aircraft systems is an extended process and mission requirements must be factored early on into design. Similar to spacecraft, aircraft sensitivity to weight and form requires accurate modeling especially with the increase in on-station time requirements and increased operating costs for military and civilian air fleets.

As unmanned aircraft evolve to support multiple aircraft coordination, loner range and greater persistence, small factors in early design from airframe to sensor payloads require entirely new breakthroughs if mission capabilities are to be achieved. Integration of manned and unmanned aircraft requires an overall system analysis to validate safety of flight plans.
