Looft, Fred J.
MATLAB and Simulink were used to create a behavioral model of the Space Technology 5 (ST-5) satellites, which are scheduled for launch after 2003. The model focused on the health status of the satellite power system and data recorder, and on the satellite's ability to transmit at a given time. The model will serve as a testing and updating tool for the Goddard Space Flight Center. The project idea was generated from a similar project performed by the United States Air Force Academy in which requirements and behavioral models were created and implemented for the FalconSat small satellite program.
