EcosimPro and PROOSIS are powerful mathematical tools capable of modelling any kind of dynamic system represented by differential-algebraic equations (DAE) or ordinary-differential equations (ODE) and discrete events. They are integrated visual environments that provide intuitive tools for making simulation easy.
The tools provide an object-oriented non-causal approach for creating reusable component libraries and are based on very powerful symbolic and numerical methods capable of processing complex systems of differential-algebraic equations. With theirs clever wizards, they provide modellers with an easy way to build consistent mathematical models.
EcosimPro and PROOSIS are used by leading companies in the Aerospace and Energy sectors. European Space Agency (ESA) has chosen EcosimPro as its recommended tool for simulation in several fields, including propulsion, environmental control systems and life support (ECLSS) and power systems. For the last 15 years, ESA has turned to EcosimPro to model complex systems of the International Space Station (ISS), rocket propulsion and biological systems, among others.

5th April 2013: New ESPSS Workshop
ESA and Empresarios Agrupados are organising a workshop focused on Space Propulsion Systems Simulation with EcosimPro and the ESPSS libraries at ESA-ESTEC (Noordwijk, NL) during May 21-23, 2013. During this workshop the last version of the libraries, ESPSS 3, will be presented. Moreover, some real applications will be presented by industrial and research institutions in order share experience and to discuss the advantages, drawbacks and potential improvements of the tool.

27th March 2013: PROOSIS 3.2 released
Today PROOSIS 3.2 has been released. This new version provides new capabilities such as extended transient, new text editor, new Simulink S-function export tool, more informative log convergence files, automatic export of models to MS Visual Studio debugger, etc.
30 January 2013: Best paper award in ASME conference using PROOSIS.
The paper entitled “Modeling Contra-Rotating Turbomachinery Components for Engine Performance Simulations: The Geared Turbofan With Contra-Rotating Core Case” written by A. Alexiou et al. (Laboratory of Thermal Turbomachines of the National Technical University of Athens) has been awarded as Best Paper in ASME-TURBO Conference in the Cycle Innoation section. The paper was presented in Copenhagen in June 2012. This paper presents a method of modeling contra-rotating turbomachinery components for engine performance simulations in PROOSIS.

17 December 2012: Newsletter number 7 has been issued
31 October 2012: Available in our web the papers on Space Propulsion Modelling with EcosimPro/ESPSS (PROPULSION 2012 Bordeaux)
Some of the papers presented at the last space propulsion conference organised by ESA and CNES in Bordeaux in May 2012 are now available on our website. The selected articles make use of the ESPSS and EcosimPro libraries to model different types of space propulsion and, in many cases, compare them. For more information, click on this link.
