NASA Goddard Space Flight Center is pleased to announce the immediate availability of open source software for space mission analysis and trajectory design. The General Mission Analysis Tool (GMAT) has been under development by NASA, in partnership with Thinking Systems, Inc., for four years, and is an ongoing technology development effort. GMAT is offered free of charge to use, modify, and share as described under the terms of the NASA Open Source Agreement.
We are excited that this release is the start of a long term effort to work with the space community to develop and apply space mission design technology. While GMAT has undergone extensive testing and is mature software, we consider the software to be in Beta form. We are in the process of performing significant testing to prepare GMAT for operational use.
