Exotrail signed a license contract with Thales Alenia Space for ExoOPS™, its simulation and operation software dedicated to space mobility.
Thales Alenia Space, which is a joint venture between Thales of 67 percent and Leonardo, a 33 percent ownership, becomes a customer of ExoOPS™ – Mission Design. Thales Alenia Space and Exotrail signed the contract in January.
ExoOPS™ – Mission Design is Exotrail’s simulation and mission design environment commercialized as part of the ExoOPS™ software suite.
Accessible as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), ExoOPS™-Mission Design is a simulation environment built on Exotrail unique in-house flight dynamics and object-oriented core, ExoOPS™-Engine.
On top of ExoOPS™-Engine, ExoOPS™-Mission Design aggregates simulation and design functional modules allowing to run quick scenarios for constellation design, generation, and optimization; parametric studies on mission performance for given satellite parameters or complete satellite simulation performances for a given mission. Thanks to ExoOPS™-Mission Design Thales Alenia Space’s Navigation & IoT bid and advanced projects team will benefit from:
- collaborative and cross-functional teamwork capabilities for simulation scenarios and result sharing.
- powerful though user-friendly space mission simulation capabilities.
- Interfacing capabilities to already existing external software through import/export functionalities for data exchange in multiple formats.
- friendly and intuitive graphical user interfaces allowing a quick software onboarding.
On this occasion, David Henri, Exotrail’s Chairman &We are thrilled to welcome Thales Alenia Space onboard ExoOPS™-Mission Design. Convincing one of the worldwide satellite industry leaders is a true recognition of our product development strategy aiming to position ExoOPS™ as a leading orbital mechanics tool supporting deployment of complex mission from very early design phase to in-orbit operation ».
Thales Alenia Space is the latest addition to the list of many customers that includes also CNES or Eutelsat.
