Abstract:

This report was produced to serve as the benchmark to be used during the acceptance test for the Simulator for Flight Test and Development SAFTD at Edwards AFB. Afterwards, the document will be used to train new engineers to use the simulator. The writing is tutorial in nature and it stresses the orderly organization of a computer flight simulation. Model validation is explained in terms of static and dynamic checks. The report is not intended to arrive at any operational conclusion or new discoveries. This Space Shuttle Simulation, which is aimed at training and contractual acceptance of procured hardware, is different from the AFFTC Office of Advanced Manned Vehicles Space Shuttle Simulation, which is used to support Shuttle development and flight testing.
