The Future Of Flight

One Product. Complete Flight Dynamic Mission Lifecycle. SatFlyer™ is a versatile software toolset that provides full-lifecycle flight-dynamics capabilities, orbit calculation and attitude determination with an adaptable, buildable platform.

What Is SatFlyer And How Does It Work?

Customizable, scalable, and affordable, SatFlyer provides end-to-end mission design capabilities. A unique software solution, SatFlyer offers modeling, prediction, disposal and maneuver planning, radio frequency interference, an orbit calculator, mass properties calculations, and a Python application programming interface in a single product.

If you’re looking to manage the entire flight dynamics mission lifecycle, you’re looking for SatFlyer™.

What Kind Of Full-Lifecycle Flight Dynamics Capabilities Are Provided By SatFlyer?

SatFlyer™ provides orbit calculation and attitude determination allowing a user to determine where a spacecraft is and its orientation. The software models trajectories, including it’s launch, change of orbit planes, and disposal. It also provides options for Earth gravity models, sun and moon perturbations, and external forces from atmospheric drag and solar winds that perturb the trajectory of the vehicle. By modeling these forces, a user can analyze satellite vehicles in specific space environments, orbits, and attitudes.
