Aerospace Toolbox

Aerospace reference standards, environmental models, and aerodynamic coefficient importing

Aerospace Toolbox provides reference standards, environmental models, and aerodynamic coefficient importing for performing advanced aerospace analysis to develop and evaluate your designs. Options for visualizing vehicle dynamics include a six-degrees-of-freedom MATLAB® animation object and interfaces to FlightGear flight simulator and Simulink® 3D Animation™ software. These options let you visualize flight data in a three-dimensional (3-D) environment and reconstruct behavioral anomalies in flight-test results.

Data Import

Import DATCOM data into MATLAB environment

Coordinate Systems

Represent aircraft and spacecraft motion and orientation

Unit Conversions

Conversion of units, such as mass, pressure, and density, and time calculations

Environment

General atmospheric profiles such as ISA, COESA; nonstandard day simulations; lapse rate atmosphere; pressure altitude

Gas Dynamics

Flow relations, such as isentropic, normal shock, Rayleigh, Fanno, and Prandtl-Meyer

Visualize Trajectory and Attitude

View vehicle dynamics in 3-D flight paths and trajectories
