July 20th, 2017 by Susan Smith
Orbit Logic announced recently that they have released a new version of their Collection Planning & Analysis Workstation (CPAW) software with enhanced constellation collection planning optimization. A mission planning and scheduling software for imaging satellite operations, CPAW is deployed operationally on multiple commercial and government programs. specializes in mission planning and scheduling solutions for aerospace and geospatial intelligence. Orbit Logic’s operationally proven COTS products create efficient plans with fewer resources for all mission phases.
Prior versions of CPAW were capable of performing coordinated imagery collection planning for a constellation of imaging satellites, yet the new CPAW cloud-enabled constellation planning optimizes constellation collection planning considering all asset collection opportunities to all imaging targets within the user-defined planning period. The new cloud-based algorithm solution provides significantly enhanced overall solution scoring using an algorithm-independent figure-of-merit for both Earth observation and Space Situational Awareness (SSA) scenarios.
“CPAW’s enhanced constellation optimization capabilities are enabled by scalable cloud-computing resources.” said Alex Herz, president of Orbit Logic. “We’re continuing to advance the collection planning state-of-the-art as imaging satellite constellations grow in size and capability, and we are leveraging cloud computing resources that have become more affordable and accessible to both commercial and government customers.”
