  • A new numerical software package to analyze spacecraft charging, named ldquomulti-utility spacecraft charging analysis toolrdquo (MUSCAT), has been developed. MUSCAT consists of an integrated graphical user interface tool called ldquoVineyardrdquo and the solver. Vineyard enables satellite engineers to compute spacecraft charging with little knowledge of the numerical calculations. Functions include 3-D satellite modeling, parameter input such as material and orbit environment, data transfer… CONTINUE READING
