The culmination of Dr. Zipfel's renowned teaching tools is this multimedia CD on high fidelity aerospace simulations. If you have mastered his previous publications, or if you are a professional working in modeling and simulation, you will profit from this interactive training of advanced aerospace systems in C++. In 20 labs, you will learn the formulation of six degrees of freedom equations of motions over the rotating elliptical Earth. Study the aerodynamics, propulsion and flight controls of a hypersonic ascent vehicle. Insert a transfer vehicle into orbit, and release an interceptor that rendezvous with a space station or intercepts a satellite. You will use 17 progressively more complex simulations that model such advanced systems as INS, GPS with Kalman filter, star tracker, rendezvous and intercept guidance with phased array seeker. You will be rewarded with a sophisticated simulation for a three stage hypersonic vehicle with orbiting space station and ground tracking radar, as well as Matlab[registered] m-files for flight controller design.

This CD builds on two previously published self-study courses, entitled: "Building Aerospace Simulations in C++" and "Fundamentals of Six Degrees of Freedom Aerospace Simulations and Analysis in FORTRAN and C++", and is anchored in the textbook "Modeling and Simulation of Aerospace Vehicle Dynamics". You may picture yourself being in a classroom at the University of Florida with students who have used the same material to earn 3 graduate credits. All you need is this CD, the textbook, the Microsoft C++ 6 or 7 compiler, and the Microsoft Internet Explorer 6. Use this CADAC Web link to apply for a free CD with tailor-made plotting programs. The instructions come alive with 90 video and audio clips, and about 800 hyperlinks connecting the 619 training charts. A total of 150 hands-on exercises will help you explore the simulations and check your progress against the provided solutions. Once completed, you will have mastered most key components of advanced aerospace simulations.
