Methods for Generating Aircraft Trajectories

  title={Methods for Generating Aircraft Trajectories},
  author={D Quanbeck},
Abstract : Methods for generating three dimensional aircraft trajectories necessary for quantitatively assessing aircraft tactics are documented in this report. Elements conventionally used in modeling aircraft motion are assembled to form a model governing aircraft translation, fuel use, and attitude. Assumptions on the functional dependence of the aircraft external forces and specific fuel consumption result in a system of seven equations and eleven variables governing aircraft trajectories… CONTINUE READING
