Systems Tool Kit (STK)

STK provides an inclusive modeling environment used worldwide by public and private sector organizations to model complex land, sea, air, or space systems and evaluate their performance in real or simulated time. STK supports timely decision-making in a mission context about complex, inter-related systems; and can be applied at any stage in their lifecycle: from planning and design to training and operations.

Evaluating STK

  • Online trial. Quickly try out STK by running our online trial version. There’s nothing to install and the experience is the same as the desktop version.
  • STK for free. Download the highly capable, permanently free version of STK to install on your desktop. After you register, demo licenses of key modules are available within the software.

Maneuver Processing Tool (MPT)

An ODTK module that automatically characterizes non-cooperative maneuvers. MPT enables orbit analysts who encounter non-cooperative maneuvers to quickly solve for the maneuver characteristics, maintaining track custody of the space object and informing operations.
