Modeling & Simulation

Proving the possible through analysis.

Exostrategies creates custom models as a basis for simulating real world data to validate changes within a system. Our models establish an accurate baseline and can determine the most likely outcome of changes made to effectively evolve a system.

Orbital Dynamics

At a Glance

When making decisions concerning complex planning and design, some organizations can be limited if they operate on human intuition and utilize static, rather than dynamic, analyses. Without the establishment of an optimal design, resources such as time, money, and energy can be unnecessarily expended.

The Exo Solution

Exostrategies creates a virtual representation of systems, allowing:

Simulation under a wide range of conditions to anticipate how the system will behave

Multiple testing conditions that would ordinarily be impossible to reproduce without spending large amounts of funding

Improvement of the quality of risk mitigation courses of action, reducing common mistakes

Highlights

Exostrategies’ modeling and simulation processes support the Air Force Satellite Control Network (AFSCN) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Informational Service (NESDIS) by:

Identifying overflight hotspots that cause premature hardware failure points, the benefits of various antenna locations, and the feasibility of phased array radars in place of traditional radars

Creating a system that calculates all satellite missions and their overflight for any number of ground station points

Optimizing an analysis platform to calculate 100,000+ of contact visibilities with ground stations in advance

Creating a scheduling platform that enables operators to establish pre-defined mission priorities for various systems

Performing Monte-Carlo simulations of probability, resiliency, or variation in pre/post processing

Replicating the actual scheduling metrics to within a 3% margin of error and using this baseline to determine the best sequence of antenna upgrade sequencing with the least amount of risk and impact to overall network performance

Providing a ground site optimization recommendation based on current and future demands to their network, resulting in a $50,000,000+ cost savings

Network Traffic Analysis

In any network, devices must be able to communicate with each other, but they are all vying for the same bandwidth. Increased network data acts can bog down a network and result in slowing down operations, putting the network and systems that rely on at risk.

Highlights

Exostrategies uses our event-based simulation approach to support the Air Force Satellite Control Network (AFSCN) in:

Creating a custom Quality of Service model for simulating the prioritization of satellite data passed over a ground network

Identifying key metrics such as data latency, bandwidth, and saturation issues

Incorporating actual satellite contact visibility windows into simulations, allowing us to replicate real-world conditions instead of probable conditions

Launch Range Optimization
