In missile preliminary design it is necessary to quickly and economically estimate the aerodynamics of a wide variety of missile configuration designs. Since the ultimate shape and aerodynamic performance are so dependent upon the subsystems utilized, such as payload size, propulsion system selection and launch mechanism, the designer must be capable of predicting a wide variety of configurations accurately. The fundamental purpose of Missile Datcom is to provide an aerodynamic design tool which has the predictive accuracy suitable for preliminary design, and the capability for the user to easily substitute methods to fit specific applications.
