Wolfram SystemModeler Used for Europa Clipper Pre-project
The Europa Clipper is a concept under study by NASA that would conduct detailed reconnaissance of Jupiter's moon Europa and would investigate whether the icy moon could harbor conditions suitable for life.
The Flight Software and Data Systems team at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, is using Wolfram's SystemModeler as one of the Model-Based Systems Engineering applications to support engineering analysis on the pre-project. The team is examining integrating the model with an object-oriented database to facilitate tracking component configurations.
Europa Clipper would send a highly capable, radiation-tolerant spacecraft into a long, looping orbit around Jupiter to perform repeated close flybys of Europa. Currently under consideration, the pre-project is being studied for a possible launch date in 2022.

Virtual Prototypes in Solar-Powered Energy Systems
Through the creation of a virtual prototype of the Cleanergy CSP system, the system can be tested in a safe environment, and the improvements of a possible change can be analyzed in a more efficient way. Furthermore, things such as profit estimations compared to geographical data can be done very quickly.

Building the Pod Propulsion Mermaid™ System
As a world leader in ship propulsion development, it is crucial to have an in depth understanding of system dynamics. Therefore we collaborate with [Wolfram] MathCore whenever we need to develop and analyze dynamic models of our systems.

Developing Engine Test Benches
When we were about to develop a new engine test bench, we contacted [Wolfram] MathCore and asked them to help us with the vibration analysis. By making a dynamic model in [SystemModeler] MathModelica they could study the system dynamics and give us design recommendations that proved to be essential for the success of the test bench.

Maximizing Gas Turbine Performance
By using [Wolfram] MathCore as an external partner, we can be sure that we really obtain a finished model with correct results, within the given constraints. We can therefore give MathCore our best recommendations.
