With SDL's SensorCAD, users can quickly compose and operate sensor-based system simulations. SensorCAD uses a complete set of built-in capabilities to reduce development time and cost, and provide a single, common interface to perform any mission simulation.

SensorCAD contains parametric models for sensors, satellites, air and ground vehicles, natural phenomena, shapes, surface optical properties, and thermal analysis. Users can also extend SensorCAD's capabilities by adding their own models.

SDL's business partner, Analytical Graphics, Inc. (AGI), offers SensorCAD in a Satellite Tool Kit (STK) plugin called STK/EOIR. Designed specifically for electro-optical and infrared sensors, STK/EOIR models sensor detection, tracking and imaging performance for space situational awareness, missile defense and earth remote sensing applications.
