dc.description.abstractThis research outlines the design of a large scale simulation of satellites tracking large amounts of dynamic targets. The use of such a simulation is presented and current solutions available are presented. The research sets out a list of objectives to meet by creating an application programming interface (API) that have the requirements of being efficient, scalable, flexible, and easy to use for the implementer. Methods of creating sections of the simulation such as the attitude motion of a satellite based on the physical characteristics of nanosatellites is explored and developed. The creation of targets that are contained only on certain land features are also developed and tested. The objectives set out are tested by creating a simulation using the API developed and the results are presented.
