Exotrail signed a license contract with Thales Alenia Space for ExoOPS, its simulation and operation software dedicated to space mobility.

Thales Alenia Space, Joint Venture between Thales (67%) and Leonardo (33%), 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 and 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 and CEO comments: "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".

After being commercialised in spring 2020, ExoOPS has seen a rising commercial success. Thales Alenia Space is the latest addition to the list of many customers that includes also CNES or Eutelsat.

An astronaut's guide to out-of-Earth manufacturing
Paris (ESA) Mar 09, 2021
Improvising new stuff from the stuff you have is part of an astronaut's job description - think Apollo 13's crew refitting CO2 filters to save their own lives, or stranded Mark Watney in The Martian, feeding himself on the Red Planet. Now plans are underway to manufacture items in orbit, and ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst argues this could make a big difference to living and working in space. Alexander - who has spent just under a year in orbit, becoming the second European to command the Internati ... read more
