The Envisat satellite real-time simulator (Envisim) is currently being developed for the European Space Agency (ESA) by Science Systems. Envisim will be used to prepare operators for the satellite launch in 2000 and thereafter to support the mission. Envisim contains realistic models of the Envisat spacecraft and ground hardware, flight software, spacecraft environment and attitude and orbit dynamics. Phased deliveries have progressively added breadth and complexity to these models.
