Our goal is to develop the best mission planning software.
Voyager features a detailed, high definition, and visually stunning space map which will include all planets, asteroids, and other bodies within our solar system - as well as all star systems and known exoplanets within 15 light-years. The map is dynamic, with all objects positioned in their actual locations at any time between the years 2000-2050 AD.
Each object has a vast store of relevant information to planetary scientists, spaceflight engineers, and science students which can be accessed with the click of a button. The map is also extendable which allows newly discovered asteroids, satellites, or exoplanets to be added on the fly.
Voyager is being built around the concept of real-time mission planning - which means that as soon as you modify an orbit, you see the change. Using modified patched conics, it is possible to quickly and easily proof out mission ideas while maintaining the accuracy expected of first order mission plans. Voyager supports mission planning for a variety of different propulsion systems - from classical rockets, to ion thruster systems.
Mission planning is designed to be quick and intuitive, providing the user with not only instant feedback, but with self-updating mission documentation as well. Important metrics, including Delta-V usage and orthographic projections, are calculated automatically with each new maneuver. Mission planning with Voyager is designed to be painless and straightforward, while maintaining the accuracy and data analysis required for even the most demanding of space missions.
Beyond first-order mission planning, Voyager makes use of a powerful set of simulators to enable detailed assessment of trajectories and maneuvers. Once a mission has been prepped, the simulator can take over and assess the plan in order to create a much clearer idea of what happens. As the calculations finish, a visual output of the simulation is overlayed on the space map, along with an expanding cone to indicate mathematical divergence of accuracy.
This powerful tool allows for iterative mission design. The user lays out a basic plan, the simulator responds with the realistic result, and the user can iterate their design as required.
