Digital Mission Modeling – STKCore

As it sounds, STKCore® is the foundational STK® training vehicle to place the user on a strong path towards digital mission modelling effectiveness and excellence. It is based on the capabilities and features of the Ansys STKPro product.

Since Ansys STKPro is a product by itself, we no longer refer to the legacy STK® modules upon which STK® was originally built. Instead, we will focus on decision-worthy capabilities, such as:

  • Select, build, or import vehicle and sensor models and combine them to accurately represent existing and proposed systems: space, air, and terrestrial systems.
  • Simulate the entire system in action at any location and at any time to gain a clear understanding of the system behavior and its mission performance.
  • Model complex sensors, additional constraint options, and terrain analysis impact.
  • Streamline, organize, and extend the fundamental computational capabilities of STK®. It contains these application-wide tools:
    • Time Tool. Creates components that produce instances or intervals of time.
    • Vector Geometry Tool. Creates components that define location, pointing, and orientation in 3D space.
    • Calculation Tool. Creates components that produce various time-dependent quantities.
    • Spatial Analysis Tool. Creates calculations and conditions that depend on locations in 3D space which are, in turn, provided by user-definable volume grids.
  • Remote Sensing/ISR Analysis – Analyze when and how well regions on or above the central body’s surface are “covered” by a collection of assets based on a user-defined performance criteria. The combination of STK Analysis Workbench capabilities and STK Coverage capabilities leverage the powerful analytical capability called Volumetrics.
  • Communication System Analysis – Insert, model, modify, analyze and produce output for communication systems: satcom, terrestrial and urban.
  • RADAR System Analysis – Insert, model, modify, analyze and produce output for RADAR systems: Search/Track, Multi-function
