Meeting LEO Satellite Systems Development Challenges with Simulation Technology

As the need for internet communications and connectivity increases in the everyday activities of the government and military as well as in commercial and personal interactions, satellite communication systems become a key to the future growth of communications. However, while the opportunities for and the importance of satellites grow, developers of low earth orbit (LEO) satellite constellations, ground stations, and terminals are facing major challenges in testing their systems to ensure successful operation, communication, and security.

Simulation technology provides a solution to these challenges that can save time, lower costs, provide valuable metrics, and improve performance and security. Wind River® Simics ® is a full-system simulator used by software developers to simulate the hardware of complex electronic systems such as LEO satellites. Simics allows on-demand and easy access to any target system, more efficient collaboration between developers, and more efficient and stable automation.
