Flight Dynamics Systems, Modeling, and Analysis
Omitron offers flight dynamics systems, modeling, and analysis services using today's most advance tools. Accurately modeling a system's physical attributes, emulating external environment influences, and simulating specific scenarios is often a necessary first step toward performing complex analyses. This type of analysis is especially important in the aerospace industry where modeling and simulation are required because actual experimentation and testing are often impractical or impossible. Omitron's core modeling & analysis competencies include the following:

GPS Position Data Filtering
Precision Orbit Determination
Force Model Studies
Attitude Modeling
Coverage Analysis

Atmospheric Drag & Orbit Decay Predications
Contact Time Analysis
Science Yield Analysis
Conjunction Assessment

Our astrodyamic modeling and analysis capabilities have been used to formulate and define mission concepts, support mission analyses, and develop specialized flight dynamics tools. Using data either derived from in-house developed models or provided by external sources, Omitron engineers leverage their analytical capabilities to perform studies on a wide-variety of problems for our customers. Omitron's aerospace engineers and flight dynamicists are skilled in the specialized engineering practices and mathematics required to perform complex dynamic analyses for the aerospace industry.

Omitron is also experienced in development of flight dynamics tools and systems to support mission operations. Our engineers and software developers possess the skills and expertise to develop robust, accurate flight dynamics systems with flight-proven mission success.
