12: Verification and Validation Methods
Oral presentation at the conference
The plethora of spacecraft simulation software tools is an indispensable part of modern spacecraft design processes. The continual increase in complexity of spacecraft missions and maneuver design, dynamical and kinematic design verification and post-launch telemetry analysis all heavily rely on software simulation tools. This simulation ability provides engineers with the tools to increase...
