ASTE Licensing of Systems Toolkit
The ASTE Department is an educational affiliate of Analytical Graphics, Inc.
(www.agi.com). AGI has granted ASTE
students the right to use Systems Toolkit (STK, formerly Satellite Toolkit)
free of charge for educational purposes.
USC students taking ASTE classes or participating in ASTE student projects
such as Rocket Lab or the Microsatellite Project can obtain an educational
license to use STK on their own computers. (STK is a Windows-only program.
For use on a Mac or Linux machine, a Windows virtual machine or dual boot
must be set up.)
Following are instructions for
installing and licensing STK.
(Sign on for more details.)
- Download STK Professional from
www.agi.com and install it
under the demo license.
(The current licensing system requires STK version 12.4 or later.)
- Send an email to Dan Erwin specifying
the ASTE course or student project
for which you plan to use STK.
You will receive network licensing instructions.
- To run STK your machine will need access to the USC network, for
example by connecting to the USC Secure Wireless if on campus or
using the USC VPN if off campus.
