Overview of ESABASE2 offerings
ESABASE2 is available in various bundles. Each bundle is based on the ESABASE2 framework which is used for geometry modelling and exchange and for orbit definition. The different applications are available as plug-ins to the framework. Esabase2 provides the following bundles
ESABASE2 provides its users with all means to perform reliable and highly efficient analyses for various engineering disciplines in space-system design. Its up-to-date architecture and interfaces make it a valuable contribution for a more efficient spacecraft design.
ESABASE2 stands for
A state-of-the-art PC based tool
Sophisticated modelling capabilities (spacecraft pointing and kinematics; shadowing effects, …)
A framework based on Open Source components.
Comprehensive data exchange capabilities (STEP, GDML)
Highly ergonomic geometry modelling and viewing capabilities
Short design cycles due to very good performance
Ergonomic result visualisation and post processing capabilities
Open Source components used in ESABASE2
ESABASE2 Graphical Interface
ESABASE2 convinces its users by an ergonomic workflow concept. The user interface is highly configurable and can be customized to fit the user’s preferences. This was achieved by using Eclipse to develop ESABASE2.
Necessary GUI elements to
The menu bar
Editor window which can contain
several pages of editors
The ESABASE2 Explorer window
Efficiency Through Ergonomics
Duplication of work is minimised by the possibility to combine once established geometries, mission specifications and application parameter settings in any possible way. The interface to external CAD tools like CATIA via STEP files (AP 203, 214) allows the import of existing geometry models.
