What’s New in FreeFlyer 7.7?

The FreeFlyer Team spent 2021 hard at work and is proud to bring you FreeFlyer 7.7, packed with user-requested features to improve your space mission design, analysis, and operations. We’re adding major improvements in the following areas:

 

SRP Modeling

Users can now model high-fidelity solar radiation pressure (SRP) with custom flat plates designed around unique Spacecraft architecture. Create any shape, visualize in ViewWindows, and report resulting SRP forces and torques. Flat plate models applied to solar panels can automatically track the Sun using single or two-axis rotation.

SGP4 Propagation

Built-in support for the latest SGP4/SGP4-XP algorithms from US Space Force (space-track.org) ensures Spacecraft propagation and TLE handling are an exact match with the rest of the industry. This update also includes Alpha-5 TLE encoding support.
