Design Analysis of Advanced Opto-Mechanical Sensors
Comet’s space systems customers have successfully modeled and automated the complex multi-disciplinary, multi-physics process known as STOP (Structural/Thermal/Optical Performance) to predict and refine the on-orbit image performance and pointing accuracy of electro-optical sensors.
Similarly, aircraft-based sensors and laser weapons systems must also be able to operate effectively despite a range of demanding mission profiles and optics disturbances due to temperature and in-flight structural loads/vibrations (e.g., jitter analysis).
Model-Based Systems Engineering
A leading U.S. military vehicle manufacturer uses Comet to rapidly evaluate vehicle design alternatives from the conceptual design phase of a new program. The Comet-based process reduces simulation iteration time from several weeks to a matter of hours.
Simulation-Driven Design Process for a Family of Products
Off-Highway vehicles and industrial equipment are often configured to meet site-specific operating requirements resulting in a large number of design variants that must be evaluated to validate the machine’s digging capacity, cycle times, operational stability vs. contractual performance specifications.
A single Comet simulation process template enables rapid design analysis iterations to be performed on a wide range of vehicle geometry and subsystem configurations, even by non-experts.
