Abstract:

The Air Force Research Laboratory AFRL has developed a design environment IPAT and approaches to assess the performance and operational capabilities of reusable launch systems in collaboration with the NASA and industry. This approach uses the AML design environment with parametric geometry modeling. This approach has been used successfully and resulted in the Rocket Boost-Back concept under development by AFRL and SMC under the FAST ground experiment program. The RMLS program has also developed the ability to create discrete-event models and perform operational assessment which includes resource management.
