Apply the Power of C++ to Simulate Multi-Object Aerospace Vehicles|
ATI's Aerospace Simulations In C++ (2 Day) course
C++ has become the computer language of choice
for aerospace simulations. This two-day workshop
equips engineers and programmers with object
oriented tools to model net centric simulations.
Features like polymorphism, inheritance, and
encapsulation enable building engagement-level
simulations of diverse aerospace vehicles. To provide
hands-on experience, the course alternates between
lectures and computer experiments. The instructor
introduces C++ features together with modeling of
aerodynamics, propulsion, and flight controls, while the
trainee executes and modifies the provided source
code. Participants should bring an IBM PC compatible
lap top computer with Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 or
2008 (free download from MS). As prerequisites, facility
with C++ and familiarity with flight dynamics is highly
desirable. The instructor's textbook "Modeling and
Simulation of Aerospace Vehicle Dynamics" is provided
for further studies. This course features the CADAC++
architecture, but also highlights other architectures of
aerospace simulations. It culminates in a net centric
simulation of interacting UAVs, satellites and targets,
which may serve as the basis for further development.
