SatMAD: Satellite Mission Analysis and Design
SatMAD is an open source Python package, aiming at providing the base functionality to solve satellite mission analysis and design as well as orbital mechanics problems with enough precision and performance to be used in the design and operation of real satellites. The target audience is academics and amateur satellite community, including Cubesats (and anyone else who might be interested).
The focus is on good documentation and good test coverage to produce a reliable flight dynamics library.
Current functionality is:
- Initialising an orbit with a TLE
- Propagating the orbit analytically via the SGP4 propagator
- Propagating the orbit numerically via the Scipy ODE Solvers (two-body force model)
- Good infrastructure for time interval management and event finding
- Harnessing the extensive Astropy functionalities (e.g. finding azimuth and elevation over a ground location and coordinate frame transformations)
