ESA Earth Observation Satellites

The SAMI (Satellite MIssion) app displays stunning high-definition 3D and 2D real time animation and simulations of ESA Earth Observation Satellites orbiting around the Earth.
The current version of the app is tailored to the following set of ESA Earth Observation missions: Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2, Sentinel-3, Sentinel-5P, Sentinel-6, Swarm, SMOS, Cryosat-2, Aeolus, Cheops, Metop-SGA, Metop-SGB and Earthcare.

SAMI app displays the following elements of a mission scenario:
- orbit tracks, orbit ground-tracks and footprints (swath) of the instruments on-board
- the event of entering/exiting the area of visibility between the satellite and the ground stations
- moving parts deployments, like solar and antenna
- thrusters firing

With the editing capabilities of SAMI app, it is possible to:
- drive various camera views (camera attached to the Earth or to the satellite,..)
- select textures for the Earth's surface
- enable / disable display of instrument swaths
- make active/inactive a given ground station

It is possible to run a simulation and give the user control over time simulation parameters:
- Play / Pause, Speed factor
- set simulation start/stop time
- real-time simulation mode (set to UTC time)
- run in endless loop mode

The satellite position, attitude and swath footprint are obtained using Earth Observation CFI SW software engine used across ESA Earth Observation ground segments.
