This Project goal is the development of simulation software tools to be used in the development of the system and software for Satellite Attitude and Orbit Control The Attitude and Orbit Control System is one of the main satellite systems and one that Brazil has not the full capacity to develop yet In this project, the company, relying on the knowhow acquired in previous research projects, equivalents to the phases I and II of the PIPE program from FAPESP, intends to enhance the prototype software tools developed, and turn them into a software product that can be used in the project of operational satellites. The EQUARS satellite, in development by INPE, will be a real case where these tools will be used, The development in question, will follow the requirements dictated by ECSS standards, used by the European agency and industrial community, aiming not only at the development of a software product, but also at the qualification of the company to supply recurring services for the development and production of satellites as foreseen by the PNAE plans of the Ministério de Ciência Tecnologia e Inovação and pese plans of the Ministério da Defesa. The products and services to be developed will also serve as a basis for the development of other products and services for other phases of the development cycle of a satellite. (AU)
