GUIDANCE NAVIGATION & CONTROL

Experts

Our GN&C team has expertise that spans Earth, interplanetary, and manned missions. We specialize in finding solutions to complex mission contingencies extending spacecraft lifetimes in the presence of otherwise catastrophic failures.

Design Through Launch

The capabilities of the ASI Guidance, Navigation and Control (GN&C) group include all phases of spacecraft and GN&C subsystem development from conceptual design through in-space operations.

Custom Mission Development

Mission unique algorithms, simulation, and implementation capabilities include: navigation and ephemeris filters, orbital dynamics, rendezvous, docking, planetary landing, aerobraking, and much more!

Our Success

ASI has been the GNC subsystem provider or supported the following missions: AFRL TacSat-2, USAFA FalconSAT-5, Orion, Juno, OSIRIS-REx, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, Mars Insight, ORBCOMM Gen 2 (constellation of 18 satellites) and many more.

From constellations to Lunar Landers, our GN&C team has a reputation for solving the most complex problems swiftly and affordably.

Flight Software

MAX FSW has been deployed to all common flight computer architectures and has been integrated with numerous actuators, sensors and payloads.

Technical Expertise

Our FSW Team's understanding of spacecraft design, AI&T, and ground systems combined with the expertise in embedded software development allow us to solve the most complex space challenges.

GROUND DATA SYSTEMS

Experts

Our Ground Data Segment (GDS) Team has years of experience designing and deploying complex ground systems from small commercial solutions to large government programs.

Solutions

Providing ground solutions for simulation environments, AI&T, and operations. Software and Infrastructure deployments include ground networks, voice/video systems, private tunnels, ground station integration and security.

Ground Tools

MAX GDS was developed in-house with input from customers and our GDS, FSW, and Ops teams. This strategy has led to the creation of ground tools that work and solve complex ground issues.

Our Success

The success of the GDS Team is attributed to the mix of web/data warehousing experts with aerospace engineers, The GDS Team has extensive experience integrating MAX GDS and other commercial ground systems.

MAX GDS has evolved from our expertise in complex space missions and years of experience developing enterprise web applications.

Payload Interface Units

ASI produces custom payload and instrument control units using both COTS avionics and ASI designed Microcontroller-based systems used for a variety of spacecraft and payload control functions. These designs can be tailored to your specific needs and have the computing capability to handle complex control and computing functions.

Custom Components

When COTS solutions cannot meet requirements, our team designs and manufactures space-qualified hardware components and avionics for your spacecraft. Our spacecraft hardware and avionics have been through full qualification and acceptance tests including random vibration, shock, thermal-vacuum, and EMC/EMI

INTEGRATION, TEST, & OPS

Integration and Test

ASI has played key roles in the Integration and Test phases of CubeSats, commercial constellations, and human-rated spacecraft. This experience is fed into our software and spacecraft programs from the beginning to streamline I&T.

Mission Ops

The team has operated spacecraft orbiting 4 planets, asteroids, and large constellations. We enable our customers to maximize their spacecraft value on-orbit and know how to quickly respond to anomalies and restore mission functionality even after critical failures.

Spacecraft Operations Center

The ASI facility features a fully operational spacecraft operations center with a UHF Antenna onsite and connections to multiple remote ground stations. This facility is capable of primary and backup operations of spacecraft constellations.


Ops Room

The MAX tool suite has been designed from the beginning to enable capable, efficient, and autonomous operations based on our decades of experience.

Full Life-Cycle Development

ASI takes pride in finding system level solutions which leverage our depth of subsystem expertise and allows us to find cost effective solutions to complex problems and missions. We support full life-cycle development and are experts at optimizing systems to meet mission requirements, including: Systems design from concept through operations, requirements definition, flow-down, verification and validation, trade studies, system/subsystem budgets, and design optimization.

Breadth of Experience

Our systems engineers would be considered subsystem experts in many organizations, but their breadth of experience across subsystem boundaries makes them excellent at systems engineering. Our experience includes concept of operations (CONOPS) design, development, and analysis, modeling and simulation in a Digital Mission Engineering framework, Spacecraft and component specifications, ICDs, and user’s guides Payload accommodation (mission, system, and subsystem levels).
