White Paper on E2E mission performance simulation chains (v1.2) has been updated and can be downloaded here.

This white paper captures lessons learned in the procurement and technical development of End-to-End mission performance simulation chains for Earth Observation. These tool chains includes simulation of both the target scene and the space segment, as well as the Level 1 and Level 2 processing.

The document provides recommendations, templates and reference to tools implementing common practices addressing the lessons learned.
