P.I.G.I. – The Predictive Groundstation Project
Space agencies around the world regularly send satellites into orbit and the growing number of active constellations has become increasingly difficult to monitor. For example, SpaceX recently launched the first of a 1,200-satellite constellation to provide free internet to the world. The Predictive Groundstation Project (PIGI) provides a new way of keeping track of the satellites in orbit, monitoring their system functions, and diagnosing malfunctions. The program takes in extremely large quantities of data and employs a state-of-the-art data mining program to give the user the information they need, as soon as they need it. PIGI is changing the way space organizations use satellites, since they can achieve so much more, and more quickly with the program. Saber Astronautics offers three different program licenses: Casual, Small Business, and Enterprise. The Casual license allows students and hobbyists to use the software to play around with realistic mission-control systems and get a true feel for space research. The Small Business license is for just that, providing an easy interface for smaller space research/exploration endeavors, and to manage their space-bound missions. The Enterprise License is geared toward large corporations and governments, to manage all satellites and spacecrafts in orbit around any planet in our solar system. Saber Astronautics is currently working on Virtual Reality tech to make PIGI even more effective.
