    Instructions: 1.   Install STK:  Download STK 10 Free, then install and license it on your computer. 2.   Complete Training:  Complete the STK Free sections of  3.   Complete the Certification Exercise:  Complete all scenario steps and tasks for each section. 4.   Submit your Certification Test:  Upload the scenario to the STK Data Federate. 5.   Email:  Send an email to with the folder and scenario name. Certification Exercise: On October 28, 2011, a 6.9-magnitude earthquake hit the central coast of Peru, destroying several homes and injuring dozens. Due to the number of recurring damaging earthquakes in the area, future aircraft and satellite systems are being considered to provide timely damage assessment to nearby cities. Use STK to model these systems and evaluate various aspects of their missions. Historical earthquake data is provided and will be the basis for this exercise. Section 1: Model the World Scenario steps:  1.   Create a new scenario starting at the time of the Earthquake, and ending five hours later.    Name: “STK  _Cert_FirstName LastName” e.g. STK  _Cert_JohnSmith    Start: 28 Oct 2011 18:54:00 UTCG    Stop: 28 Oct 2011 23:54:00 UTCG 2.   Insert the Peru Earthquake KML data provided in the STK Install.    C:\Program Files (x86)\AGI\STK 10\Help\STK\KML\Peru_Earthquake_Dynamic_Assets.kmz   3.   Under the “Quake_Region” fo lder within the KML tab of the Globe Manager, import the “Runway” as an Area Target.  4.   Add a 2 deg elevation angle constraint on the runway Area Target. 5.   Under the “Affected Areas” folder  within the KML tab of the Globe Manager, import the following cities as Place objects:    Ica    Parakas 6.   Use the search toolbar to insert “Chincha Alta, Peru ”  as a Place object. 7.   Delete all KML content in Globe Manager. 8.   Create a top-down view centered on Chincha_Alta to view the Runway and all three cities. Tasks: T1.   Create a stored view of the Quake Region from scenario step 8 called “Quake  Region. ”  T2.   Add the lighting intervals for Ica to the Timeline View. T3.   Create a Quick Report called “Parakas_LatLon”  of the latitude and longitude of Parakas.  Section 2: Model the Aircraft System Scenario steps:  9.   Create a new aircraft called “CertAircraft . ”  10.   Use 3D object editing or enter the Lat / Lon values for the following waypoints: 1.   Runway (Ignore the takeoff and landing and use a constant altitude of 10,000 ft) 2.   Chincha Alta 3.   Parakas 4.   Ica 5.   Runway 11.   Set each waypoint’s turn radius to 2 km. 12.   Change the route color to white and make the route line width one level thicker. 13.   Zoom to the aircraft and animate until the aircraft flies over Chincha Alta. 14.   Change the aircraft 3D model to the “ uav .mdl” model . 15.   Use the coordinated turn attitude type to model the banking of the aircraft. 16.   Create a sensor called “AC_Camera” which has a Rectangular 50x50 deg field of view. Tasks: T4.   Save a csv file of a custom report called “FlightSummary”  that includes these data providers:    Time (Set the units to EpSec)    LLA State-Fixed-Lat    LLA State-Fixed-Lon    LLA State-Fixed-Alt    Heading-Fixed-Azimuth    Heading-Fixed-Elevation    Heading-Fixed-Velocity T5.   Create an Access Quick Report called “Aircraft_to_Runway” to see if the aircraft has line -of-sight to the runway for its entire route. T6.   Create an STK video of the aircraft flying over Chincha Alta called “AircraftView.wmv . ”  T7.   Increase the aircraft’s altitude so it maintains line-of-sight to the runway for the entire flight. Section 3: Model the Satellite System Scenario steps:  17.   Use the STK Object Model to create a Satellite named “CertSatellite . ”      (Hint: Refer to the “ Task: Launch the API Demo Utility ” on )  18.   Use STK Connect to change the Inclination of the Satellite to 15 deg.    (Hint: S earch for “SetState Classical” in the STK Help)  19.   Change the CertSatellite 3D model to the “cubesat.mdl” model . 20.   Create a sensor called “Sat_Camera” which has a Simple Conic 60 deg field of view. 21.   Zoom to CertSatellite and set the animation time to when the sensor first sees Parakas. Tasks: T8.   Create an STK snapshot of the satellite from scenario step 21 called “SatView.bmp . ”  T9.   Create an AER Quick Report called “SatCamera_to_Parakas” to see how long and how far the satellite’s camera is from Parakas. T10.   Add Access Intervals to the Timeline View to determine which system ’s camera  can see Parakas first and the longest. Extra Credit Task: T11.   Create a quick report called “USSats_to_Ica” that shows a graph of the access intervals for all of the optical sensors on US Earth observation satellites that passed over Ica within the first five hours of the earthquake.    (Hint: Refer to the video guidance for “Task: Insert and Configure Objects” on the “ Build Scenarios ” page on   Section 4: Submit your Certification Test Scenario steps:  22.   From the File menu, open the “VDF Setup”  and select the following options:    Enable “Exclude Install Files” .    Only enable “Load default globe data”  in the Globe Data section.    Do Not “Copy Models” .    Make sure Publish is checked for all quick reports.    Check the “Copy scenario folder contents” option  to include all task output files. i.   Make sure all task output files (snaps, reports, video) are saved in your scenario folder. 23.   Click “OK” to apply the VDF setup options . 24.   From the File menu, select “Save To STK Data Federate . ”      Log in to the Student SDF account using the following credentials: i.   Username = Student ii.   Password = Student    Navigate to the Student directory.    Save your scenario in the Student’s SDF STK Certification Scenarios folder. i.   (Public > Users > Student > STK Certification Scenarios)    In the “Overview” section, i nclude the API commands used in Steps 17 and 18.    Click “Enable revision control for this file . ”      Click “Check In . ”  25.   Send an email to with the folder and scenario name.
