[SatNews] Orbit Logic has announced they will provide their Collection Planning & Analysis Workstation (CPAW) software and Order Logic software product and associated engineering services to a U.S. government customer for an undisclosed program. CPAW will be deployed for operational planning while Order Logic will be used for task order management and plan visualization.
Orbit Logic's Collection Planning & Analysis Workstation (CPAW) software solves the difficult problem of satellite imagery collection planning through a spacecraft simulator coupled with scheduling algorithms that generate valid and optimized high fidelity imagery collection plans for use in satellite operations, analysis, or imagery ordering. CPAW covers everything from contact scheduling and recorder management to power and antenna modeling while accounting for satellite maneuverability, system availability, timing constraints, and sensor capabilities. Planning can be completely manual, fully automated, or anywhere in between to plan for anything from a single image on a single satellite to extensive order decks collected by a constellation of multiple EO and SAR spacecraft with varying capabilities.
Order Logic is an add-on to CPAW for web-based management and tracking of imaging requests. Order Logic provides visualization of imaging plans, allows users to understand when new images of their targets are likely to be available, and tracks fulfillment status of requests for new imaging. Logins and configurable permissions ensure that users are limited to the order management capabilities and data for which they are authorized.
