Space Services Australia (SSA) provides confidence through a combination of integrated system simulations (digital twins) augmented with real hardware data through a flight twin testbench that can stimulate a spacecraft to operate as if it were in space.

This cyber-physical system provides a streamlined workflow for system testing, enabling users to catch faults earlier through frequent and rapid testing cycles. Flight twin test data integrates seamlessly into the digital twin model to provide an advanced diagnostic capability for on-orbit fault detection and correction. The cyber-physical testbench also provides a safe-to-fail environment for hands-on training, and scenario rehearsals and wargaming for staff.
