It seems like just the other day that I was writing to announce the arrival of MMT 11, and now here I am shouting from the mountaintops that the latest version of STK Missile Modeling Tools, MMT 11.1, has been released for use with STK 11.1.
The standard sales pitch when it comes to computer software is usually: more, more, more! More features! More API! More documentation! Well, I’m dreaming about that last one, but you get the idea. However, the theme for MMT 11.1 is a flip of the old script, and I’m here to tell you that less can indeed be more.
In the case of MMT 11.1, the “less” is less individual applications. The individual flight tools of previous MMT versions (MFT, IFT, SLVFT) have been replaced by a single flight tool, eponymously named MMT. The new combined tool allows you to define analysis cases for missile flights, space launches, and intercept engagements without having to switch from one application to the next. This consolidation also makes it easier to keep your analysis cases organized since you can save a set of flights and engagements to one project file rather than three.
In addition, MMT 11.1 provides three new tutorials that are designed to help you wrap your head around the space flight capability in MMT and how you can use MDT to convert missile models into space launch vehicle models. So, I guess there’s some of that traditional more, more, more in this release after all. Nevertheless, I stand by my claim: less is more! Contact AGI today and see for yourself!
