STK CIS Lunar Support

Trajectory Modeling and Cislunar Space: 5-part Series

Cislunar missions have the potential to drive scientific progress, technological innovation, and economic growth, making them an important focus for space exploration in the coming years. Trajectory modeling in cislunar space will play an important role in the success of these missions. Avoiding collisions with other objects in space, optimizing fuel consumption, and ensuring that spacecraft arrive at their destinations on time and on course are just a few objectives of trajectory modeling.

Deliver systems faster and accelerate operational decision-making.Digital mission engineering and operations software tools are packed with air-specific capabilities to shorten development cycles, streamline sustainment efforts, and enhance situational awareness. Connect model-based engineering to our mission analysis platform and achieve unrivaled speed.


Model complex, multidomain systems that incorporate your communications systems. Ensure that all your missions will have the communications they need to succeed. Evaluate configurations for your communications systems to optimize them. Arrange your assets where they give you the most while costing you the least.


Go beyond geometry and model radiometric detection to evaluate EOIR sensor performance. Analyze performance and detection over time. Generate images of the detections to visualize the synthetic scene. With DME solutions, you can model radiometric detection and performance and within the context of your entire mission and all your available assets.


Put all your geospatial data to fast, practical use. The expanding demand for geospatial intelligence meets with rapidly expanding data sets. You can synthesize data, model complex systems, and analyze the results with DME solutions.


DME solutions offer you the ability to model the full system of systems in a realistic operational environment to make critical engineering and mission planning decisions. Import standard data models or design your missile models. Evaluate parabolic and hypersonic trajectories in physics-based, high-fidelity simulations. Extend your models from land to space.


Design and model complex radar systems. Model radar systems with exquisite fidelity and apply them to the system of systems and the things you need them to detect. Evaluate it within the context of its mission.


DME solutions streamline processes and help mitigate risks throughout a system’s life cycle. From a single satellite to a large constellation, a simple orbit to a maneuvering trajectory, a primary signal relay to an EOIR sensor – when it comes to space, our software has a long history of helping you plan your future.


Land, sea, air, space, cyber – dominance in one domain is no longer possible without systems that span them all. Simulate multidoman, multi-aspect systems to streamline development, dismantle silos, and accelerate delivery.


Automate routine, repetitive tasks that maintain your catalog of orbiting space objects in a state of readiness. Deveote your time and expertise to solving problems using the data, rahter than solving problems about the data.
