SIMULUS is the ESOC infrastructure for satellite simulators

see full description

SIMULUS is composed of a run-time framework (SIMSAT), software emulators, a set of reusable generic models and a set of ground station equipment models. GMV has experience in the development of satellite operational simulators using SIMULUS for different missions; Sentinel-1, Sentinel-5P, SeoSat, Cheops and EarthCARE. Spacecraft operations simulators are software facilities executing the same central on-board software that is boarded in the actual spacecraft; they are devoted to the validation of the operational flight procedures, the training of the operation team and the validation of the mission control system.
