AES 4607 - Orbital Mechanics and Aerospace Systems Simulations

Credits: 3 (3 + 0)

Prerequisite(s): MTH 1110; AST 1040 or PHY 2010; or permission of instructor

Description: Students will be introduced to orbital analysis using Analytical Graphics Inc (AGI)’s Satellite Tool Kit (STK) software.  They will integrate this analysis with simulations involving ground systems, ground vehicles, aircraft, and ships.  Students will use STK to assess risks, optimize performance, and develop alternatives.  The main purpose of the course is to introduce STK software, its interface and capabilities related to orbital mechanics concepts.
