A New Spacecraft Radiative Thermal Model Exchange System 2003-01-2604

The Spacecraft Radiative Thermal Model Exchange System is a technology developed for the bi-directional exchange of spacecraft radiative thermal models via the TMG thermal software package. It provides a means for quickly and accurately transferring models between TMG and theree of the major thermal radiation codes used in the spacecraft industry, particularly the ESARAD and Thermica packages, which are widely used by contractors to the European Space Agency, and the TSS code which is prevalent in the United States space industry. In order to reconcile element-based and primitives-based modeling approaches, this system includes an interactive primitives-based modeling system, enabling users to construct, import, and manipulate primitives-based radiation models in TMG.
