Abstract:

COAP is a program for the simulation and optimization of combative and cooperative two-vehicles flight paths. It includes single vehicle flight paht problem capability as a subcase. Considerable emphasis is placed on the use of modern optimization. The program has the ability to perform trajectory optimization by the variational steepest-descent method including search for optimal initial conditions search for optimal arch stage lengths constraints defined at terminal point, intermediate corners stage points, or along the path and optimum parameter design variable values. The program can solve two system vehicle problems with or without reacting feedback from the second system vehicle. Author
