AGI's technology partners provide specialized tools that extend the functionality of our software.
Through a CRADA between AFRL and AER, AER contributed to the technical foundation of STK’s Space Environment and Effects (STK SEET) module. AER’s interdisciplinary expertise encompasses the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans, space, and the planets. AER’s Space Weather Division provides data assimilative model development, integration, and validation for a broad range of space weather nowcast/forecast applications to assess environmental impacts on satellites, sensors, and other assets in space.See SEET
Alion produces the Terrain Integrated Rough Earth Model (TIREM) software tool that predicts radio frequency (RF) propagation loss over terrain and seawater for ground-based and airborne transmitters and receivers. The STK TIREM extension enhances STK Communications and STK Radar by enabling users to analyze dynamic RF nodes to simulate the end-to-end system. STK TIREM also models near-field considerations, power density, and field strength equation.See TIREM
ASI's expertise includes Spacecraft Guidance, Navigation, and Control Systems, Ground Data Systems and Simulators, Avionics and Flight Software, and Systems Design and Development. ASI developed and maintains STK SOLIS which is a complete spacecraft simulation environment in STK including full rotational dynamics; attitude determination and control; sensor and actuator models; and power and payload modeling.See SOLIS
Orbit Logic provides turn-key spacecraft ground system solutions, products, and supporting engineering services with a strong operations background. STK Scheduler, an STK add-on module developed and maintained by Orbit Logic, provides a scheduling solution for complex space and ground segment resource scheduling and optimization.See STK Scheduler
Photon Research Associates, Inc. (PRA), a wholly owned subsidiary of Raytheon, developed the Radar Advanced Environment (RAE) extension to STK. This add-on module extends the modeling capabilities of STK Radar to account for range and Doppler ambiguities, mainlobe and sidelobe clutter, geo-spatial clutter maps, multiple waveforms and target detection in clutter.See RAE
Remcom's products are used by EM professionals in a wide variety of markets and applications, including antenna design, bio/EM effects, microwave circuits, photonics, ray tracing, wireless communication, EMC/EMI, and many more. The Urban Propagation (UPROP) extension to the STK Communications module uses Remcom's Wireless InSite product to perform path loss predictions in urban environments.See UPROP
Real-Time Logic, Inc. (RT Logic)
RT Logic supplies signal processing systems for communication with satellites, spacecraft, missiles, and airborne platforms. RT Logic’s T400CS Channel Simulator adds realistic hardware-in-the-loop RF signal generation to STK’s vast simulation capabilities. From factory test to flight, from ground data networking to RF links — RT Logic products support the defense and aerospace community.
SAIC provides full life-cycle services and solutions in the technical, engineering, and enterprise information technology markets. SAIC Huntsville has long supported the missile defense community dating back to their development of the then industry-standard missile modeling program, STAMP (Strategic Theater Attack Modeling Process), under the sponsorship of NAIC (now NASIC). Leveraging this technical foundation, SAIC now develops and maintains all missile modeling tools for STK.See Missile Tool Kit
Scalable Network Technologies (SNT)
SNT’s QualNet® Developer modeling and simulation tool explores and analyzes early-stage alternative device designs and application code in closed, synthetic networks at real time speed. A customized QualNet interface for STK combines network performance evaluation with the dynamic platform models, wireless link calculations, and mission visualization environment of STK to better analyze how network performance impacts the mission.
MÄK software links, simulates, and visualizes the virtual world. MÄK creates tools and toolkits for distributed simulation, and is the maker VR-Link, a toolkit for simulation networking via the DIS and HLA protocols. AGI’s Distributed Simulation (DSim) extension for STK uses VR-Link to make an IEEE-compliant DIS and HLA interface for STK.See DSIM
