This paper discusses the implementation of an end-to-end (E2E) performance simulator for the BIOMASS mission. Such E2E chain consists of the BEEPS Front End (BEEPS-FE) and the Ground Processor Prototype (GPP), which represents the Space Segment and the Ground Segment of the BIOMASS mission, respectively, and will be used to support the verification of the BIOMASS mission performance. An overview of the current architecture of the BEEPS-FE is provided along with a functional description of the modules that comprise the simulator and first E2E simulation results.
