Design and Analysis

Deployed model of the TESS spacecraft

Thorski Design has extensive expertise in all phases of spacecraft program development, from conceptual design to post-launch support. Years of analytical and hands-on experience provide Thorski Design with the knowledge and skills to create innovative solutions to challenging design problems.

Just a few of the areas in which we excel are:

  • Static and dynamic structural analysis
  • Mechanisms and deployables
  • Detailed design and drawing production
  • Subsystem and top assembly modeling and layouts
  • Mass properties and balancing analyses
  • Dynamic and kinematic analyses

We have in-depth knowledge of design and analysis tools including Creo Parametric, Solidworks, Femap, and NASTRAN, as well as development of many custom analytical tools using Matlab, Mathcad, and other scripting tools.
