Introduction:

Six Degrees Of Freedom Modeling and Simulation of Aerospace Vehicle Training Course Description

This is a two-day Six Degrees Of Freedom Modeling and Simulation of Aerospace Vehicle Training. As modeling and simulation (M&S) is penetrating the aerospace sciences at all levels, this course will introduce you to the difficult subject of modeling aerospace vehicles in six degrees of freedom (6 DoF). Starting with the modern approach of tensors, the equations of motion are derived and, after introducing coordinate systems, they are expressed in matrices for compact computer programming. Aircraft and missile prototypes will exemplify 6 DoF aerodynamic modeling, rocket and turbojet propulsion, actuating systems, autopilots, guidance, and seekers. These subsystems will be integrated step by step into full-up simulations. For demonstrations, typical fly-out trajectories will be run and projected on the screen. The provided source code and plotting programs let you duplicate the trajectories on your PC (requires MS Visual C++ compiler, free Express version). Based on these prototype simulations you can build your own 6 DoF aerospace simulations.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
