Blue Goose is a six-degree of freedom digital computer program written specifically for trajectory and dispersion analysis of the Blue Goose BG vehicle. The BG is an unguided, spin-stabilized vehicle. The rigid body equations of motion are complete and make no linear assumptions. The analysis includes the following effects oblate, spheroidal, rotating earth high angle of attack aerodynamics at lift off thrust misalignment and jet damping. The report is complete and needs no references. The equations of motion are general in that they apply to most axially-symmetric vehicles. The existing computer program is specific in that the equations of motion have been applied to a specific vehicle. With a thorough understanding of the dynamic principles presented, their application to the BG vehicle, and basic computer programming, the reader should be able to adapt the program to another vehicle.
