Abstract:

The report describes a generalized digital computer program for the simulation andor optimization of arbitrarily defined vehicle flight paths. Two simultaneously coupled three-dimensional point mass trajectories about a rotating oblate planet having a multi-layered atmosphere may be employed. Levels of reduced complexity varying from the generalized problem to straightforward planar point mass, single vehicle, vacuum trajectories may be studied with the aid of the program.
