CNES system tools


Concurrent Design Center

This page presents the system engineering applications developed by CNES to set up a technical reference and produce system budgets.

There are applications :

  • for geometric modeling of the satellite and establishment of mass and power budgets (IDM-CIC). An interactive 3D visualization module (IDM-View) and modules for reading 3D models (IDM-CAD) and graphs (IDM-Plot) are also available.
  • for creating mission scenarios (SIMU-CIC) and for visualizing satellite trajectories and attitudes (VTS)
  • and pre-sizing modules to calculate energy budgets (OPALIS) and link budgets (RF-COMLINK)
