Jupiter Environment Tool (JET)

The Jupiter Environment Tool (JET) is a custom user interface plugin for STK developed at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory that provides an interface for using Jupiter environment models for visualization and analysis. Users can visualize the different magnetic field models of Jupiter through various rendering methods. These rendering methods are fully integrated within STK's 3D Window, allowing users to take snapshots and make animations of their scenarios with magnetic field visualizations. Analytical data can be accessed in the form of custom vectors. Given these custom vectors, users can have access to magnetic field data in custom reports, graphs, access constraints, coverage analysis, and anywhere else vectors are used within STK.

Below are some sample outputs produced using JET.
