This project aims at solving the problem of manipulating satellites, getting the real time trajectories and perspective views with respect to satellites. The work is completed through simulation with the help of the AGI Systems Tool Kit.

This project is solving the Pilot a Satellite! challenge.


The aim of the project was to see how it would look like if we could Pilot an orbiting satellite and watch what a satellite could see. Our project intended to show different satellites and planets with respect to a specific selected satellite. You could visualize every detail of the earth as the satellite moves in its orbit or switches the orbit.

The project was built by using the AGI STK software which can be downloaded for free for educational purposes from the website:

The software is easy to use and can be learnt easily by going through their tutorials:
