Welcome to the ESABASE2 homepage


This website provides information about the ESABASE2 Space Engineering Analysis Tool, which was developed by etamax space under several ESA contracts.

The software kernel is based on the former ESABASE Unix-Version, which now has been integrated into a state-of-the-art (Windows-) PC-based framework.

The core of ESABASE2 is the OpenFrontier Framework, which provides wizards for the generation of spacecraft geometry models, and enables the import of ESABASE BAS-files as well as CAD-based geometries via a STEP import filter. Editors for the geometry as well as for mission input are available within the framework.

ESABASE2/Debris, ESABASE2/Sunlight, ESABASE2/Comova and ESABASE2/Atmosphere/Ionosphere are currently available analysis modules, which can be attached to the framework.

ESABASE2 is available under a specific ESA Software License and in connection with a support contract with etamax space. A detailed description of the license conditions is given on the “Licensing” page. If you are interested in an ESABASE2 license, please go to the “Registration” page and follow the instructions, or send an email.
