That's actually an interesting SAT-based mc, though I never had 
the occasion of trying it out. I like the fact that it is 
currenly under development, in my experience model checkers are 
"old" (most theoretical breaktroughs have been published in the 
1980s and still struggle to get a proper implementation). Plus, 
research is mostly supported by universities, which implies that 
development pace is often quite slow.

A model checker that has been widely adopted is NuSMV 
(https://nusmv.fbk.eu/), there's a very nice survey by K. Rozier 
from NASA Ames research center describing an example application 
of it
