Simulation and modeling environment for space exploration logistics

Space Logistics

Space logistics is an emerging topic as humanity takes the leap from single exploration missions to intricately-linked exploration campaigns. Just as extensive planning was necessary for Earth-based explorations to dangerous environments like the Arctic and Antarctic, the future of human space exploration will require extensive logistical planning for success. Even today we are seeing the importance of logistics in supporting the International Space Station (ISS) - the years to come will require a host of launch vehicles, both government and commercial, representing the interests of many nations, launched from different corners of the world.
