A study is made of the relationship between aerodynamic models and parameter estimation methods to determine a feasible plan for improving the aerodynamic models which are used for ballistic range data analysis at Eglin AFB. A plan is presented which utilizes a computer graphics terminal to process simulation runs and provide comparisons with experimental data and theoretical data fits. Included in the report are algorithms for performing system simulation and for accounting for mass-offset effects on the motion of the test item.
