Next Steps for Improvements/Enhancements
Below please find a list of enhancements/improvements for the simulator toolkit which are conceptualized for student's project work and which partly also are suited for topics of diploma theses or seminar papers.
Improve inter-model variable exchange:
Implement inter-model variable exchange not going via simulated pipings/cablings through a Provider/Subscriber table.
Enhance the OSK Infrastructure with a spacecraft attitude control.
Enhance the rocket model with attitude control functionalities, such as attitude control thusters or pivotable engine.
Enhance the Java MMI Prototype.
Enhance MMI to be able to startup simulator from MMI and to select simulator input files via MMI.
Integrate the Java based XML Editor into the Java MMI Prototype from XML-Input.
Build a system flowsheet editor for the OpenSimKit input XML file decks based on open source libraries such as JHotDraw.
Modeling an Onboard Computer Simulator to control the Rocket Propulsion System.
Diploma Thesis available in Stuttgart.
Integrate the Power Model Components with OSK Kernel.
Adapt the power model equipment components to read the OSK XML file format and to interface S/C kernel according to OSK modeling standard.
Start preparing software models for application of a central DEQ solver.
Adapt the model architecture to register derivatives at the solver and to receive back state data.
Port OpenSimKit to Android.
Port OpenSimKit to Android Operating System for Netbooks etc. Test the performance on the Davlik JVM of Android and evaluate eventual influences induced by Garbage Collector by performing various multi-orbit simulation runs.
