ESABASE2 / Sunlight

ESABASE2/Sunlight is an application for calculation of the electromagnetic radiation incident onto the surfaces of a spacecraft during a mission. Based on a complex model of electromagnetic radiation, the application can be configured with several parameters

  • Solar spectrum
  • Planet albedo properties
  • Thermo optical properties
  • Multi-emission algorithms including reflection and transmission
  • Analysis output options with respect to direct, indirect and a combination of both sources

to perform analyses:

  • Illumination analysis
  • Power profile analysis
  • UV degradation investigation
  • Stray light analysis
  • Terrestrial test verification
