A multidisciplinary conceptual design and analysis of Boeings joined-wing SensorCraft has been conducted. This analysis was completed using geometrical optimization, aerodynamic analyses, and response surface methodology on a composite structural model. Phoenix Integrations Model Center was used to integrate the sizing and analysis codes found in Raymers text, Aircraft Design A Conceptual Approach as well as those from the NASA derived conceptual design tool AirCraft Synthesis ACSYNT, and a modified Boeing Finite Element Model FEM. This research demonstrated the utility of integrated low-order models for fast and inexpensive conceptual modeling of unconventional aircraft designs.
