Fully object-oriented, flight-proven, and far more than just an illustration
tool, FreeFlyer® provides a comprehensive solution for satellite and constellation maneuver planning, simulation, illustration, and (automated, autonomous) operational control. FreeFlyer is easily configured via a MATLAB interface. It can be customized for specific satellite physical characteristics, control laws, consumption of expendables, and nominal and anomalous control system capabilities. The FreeFlyer system provides extensive support for typical satellite operations such as control system, targeting, and crosslink. FreeFlyer includes an interface to MATLAB that addresses customization of these functions with one easy-to-use tool. Application Areas: Aerospace; Communications; Control system design/analysis; Data analysis/modeling; Educational instruction; Satellite design; Satellite mission design and planning; Satellite/constellation design; System identification.
