JPL's DARTS Lab provides several multi-mission space system simulation tools for the closed-loop development and testing of flight algorithms and software. This toolkit can be used in workstation environments as well as in real-time, hardware-in-the-loop simulations for the testing and verification of flight software and hardware.
