Systems Tool Kit

STK is a software tool that allows engineers and scientists to design and develop complex dynamic simulations of real-world problems, especially those relating to satellites, spacecraft, and aircraft. Through CAP's partnership with Analytical Graphics, the makers of STK, cadets are invited to test-fly this state-of-the-art technology.

STK is a fantastic aerospace activity for cadets.
