Abstract:

The report describes the intent and capabilities of the computer program which was developed to evaluate preliminary duty cycles for missile systems, develop specifications for the control system being employed, preform preliminary design analysis on any of the control options, and predict the performance capability of a vehicle utilizing the control system characteristics obtained from the program. The seven potential control inputs are liquid injection thrust vector control, hot gas thrust vector control, gimbal ring, ball and socket, flexible seal, jet tabs, and aerodynamic surfaces.
