Aerospace Toolbox provides standards-based tools and functions for analyzing the motion, mission, and environment of aerospace vehicles. It includes aerospace math operations, coordinate system and spatial transformations, and validated environment models for interpreting flight data. The toolbox also includes 2D and 3D visualization tools and standard cockpit instruments for observing vehicle motion.
For flight vehicles, you can import Data Compendium (DATCOM) files directly into MATLAB® to represent vehicle aerodynamics. You can combine aerodynamics with reference parameters to define your aircraft configuration and dynamics for control design and flying qualities analysis.
Aerospace Toolbox lets you design and analyze scenarios consisting of satellites and ground stations. You can propagate satellite trajectories from orbital elements or two-line element sets, load in satellite and constellation ephemerides, perform mission analysis tasks such as line-of-sight access, and visualize the scenario as a ground track or globe.
Aerospace Toolbox provides standards-based tools and functions for analyzing (the) motion, mission, and environment of aerospace vehicles. It includes the ability to calculate aerodynamic stability control characteristics, model and visualize satellites in orbit, and perform advanced aerospace analysis based on aerodynamic coefficients, environment models, and reference standards.
Aerospace Toolbox lets you import DATCOM coefficients that describe aerodynamic stability and control characteristics of aerospace vehicles. Use these parameters to construct fixed-wing aircraft objects and analyze best glide quantities, nonlinear dynamics, static stability, and custom states. You can visualize aerospace flight vehicle motion via Flight Instruments, FlightGear Flight Simulator, MATLAB Animation Objects, or Simulink 3D Animation.
With Aerospace Toolbox, you can design and analyze scenarios consisting of satellites and ground stations. Propagate satellite trajectories from orbital elements or two-line element sets, perform mission analysis tasks such as line-of-sight access, and visualize the scenario using the Satellite Scenario Viewer. With our downloadable ephemeris data, you can calculate position and velocity of planets, enabling you to perform celestial navigation of marine vehicles, and estimate the analemma of the sun.
Finally, you can also quickly implement common aerospace-related math operations and transformations. Use built-in functions to estimate aerodynamics and flight parameters, perform quaternion math operations, and transform between coordinate systems and spatial representations. You can also perform unit conversions between physical quantities and time representations commonly used in aerospace, such as angular velocity values or date representations.
