Aerospace Blockset Product Description

Model and simulate aircraft, spacecraft, and propulsion systems

Aerospace Blockset™ software extends Simulink® with blocks for modeling and simulating aircraft, spacecraft, rocket, and propulsion systems, as well as unmanned airborne vehicles. It also includes blocks that implement mathematical representations from aerospace standards, common references, and first principles. Blocks for modeling equations of motion and for navigation, gain scheduling, visualization, unit conversion, and other key operations are also provided.

Key Features

  • Simulates aerospace vehicle components, including propulsion systems, control systems, mass properties, and actuators

  • Models flight dynamics, including three- and six-degrees-of-freedom equations of motion with fixed or variable mass

  • Provides options for visualizing vehicle dynamics in a three-dimensional environment, including an interface to FlightGear flight simulator

  • Includes standards-based environmental models for atmosphere, gravity, wind, geoid height, and magnetic field

  • Implements predefined utilities for converting units, transforming coordinate systems and spatial representations, and performing common aerospace math operations
