A sensitivity analysis of aerodynamic coefficients has been performed by coupling a Direct Simulation Monte Carlo method and a High Dimensional Model Representation based uncertainty quantification approach. The study has been performed on the Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Explorer satellite. The uncertainty on aerodynamics has been quantified with respect to atmospheric parameters, which have been obtained using the NRLMSISE-00 atmospheric model, within a free molecular flow regime in the Low Earth Atmosphere. The aerodynamic simulations have been performed with the dsmcFoam code, based on the open-source OpenFOAM platform.
