New multi-stimulus test facilities such as the Space Threat Assessment Testbed at the USAF Arnold Engi- neering Development Complex make understanding the similarities and differences between terrestrial test and on-orbit conditions increasingly relevant. The extensible model framework under development is intended to host the variety of models needed to describe the multiphysics environment, allowing them to interact to produce a consistent unified picture. The model framework will host modules that can be validated individually or in combination.
