Abstract
The spacecraft simulation toolkit (SST) is an advanced software architecture for the modeling and simulation of spacecraft and spacecraft interactions based upon state-of- the-art techniques, the Khoros visual programming environment, and accurate physical phenomenology. The SST simulates spacecraft systems and subsystems; the user virtually 'builds' a spacecraft by selecting and integrating components, duplicating real world actions. The models in the SST perform algorithmic simulation of spacecraft functions. System design and simulation databases provide both the knowledge base within which detailed characteristics of the system are described and an efficient means to store simulation results for additional analysis. Representation of the real-world, natural environment is provided. Khoros also provides integrated data analysis and software development tools. The SST is being configured to meet a broad range of requirements in design, technology development, systems acquisition, on- orbit operations, and spacecraft operator training.
