STM's Mission Planning Software is a web-based application that can be used to plan operations for missions consisting of one or more satellites, subject to constraints and resources. The Mission Planning Software performs high-accuracy computation of mission parameters, enabling engineers to explore opportunities to maximize benefit from their satellite system.

Key features include:

  • Automatic planning without user intervention
  • Ability to create image requests through the map application with utilities such as distance measurement on the map
  • Feasibility analysis at the entry of an image request using satellite dynamics and image geometry
  • Satellite power and memory management
  • Support for different imaging request types:
    • Spot
    • Strip (both parallel to orbit and inclined)
    • Periodic image acquisition
    • Single Pass Stereo
    • Wide Area Slicing
    • Border Line Slicing
  • More than 10 different image / target guidance methods, which differs in steering modes including special imaging techniques such as constant GSD
