Design high-fidelity spacecraft trajectories for mission planning and operations.

STK Astrogator models spacecraft trajectories and reveals mission-critical insights into them. Develop, refine, and validate solutions, then return to update subsequent stages of the mission in response to flight performance. Astrogator’s versatile and modular architecture provides a framework for addressing most spaceflight trajectory problems.
