RAX 3D Animation

DS1 Wireframe
DS1 Satellite

This 30 second animation was created for the news media to convey the idea of onboard planning. The spacecraft is shown first as a wireframe model as Remote Agent "imagines" what it's going to do. In this case, it's going to fire thrusters to turn the spacecraft, then fire the main engine to accelerate. The spacecraft is then shown executing that sequence of actions in reality.
