The Stepping Stones to High-Fidelity Flight Simulation
The AeroACES® software links aerospace-vehicle analyses from concept to flight. Its innovative architecture provides seamless interoperability and a thoroughly consistent user experience as one steps through the complexities of high-fidelity flight modeling & simulation; and unlike other codes in this specialty, AeroACES® is vibrant and growing. AeroACES® contains many tool suites to tackle the tedious analytical steps needed to create a flight model from conceptual or hard data. When the vehicle transitions to hardware, AeroACES-RT® is ready to plan missions and operate in realtime.
As a matter of FAQ...
So much is made of a code's "pedigree" as though it were a certification. It's not; and hopefully, you don't come to that realization while a high-speed, unguided projectile is sitting on the launch rail with YOUR firing solution. Don't think "everybody uses it" will be a comfort either, even if it sounded good back at the office.
The simple reality is that most flight simulation codes are built for analyses in the comfort of an office and are ill-prepared for the rigors of field operations, where a program nuance can be disastrous. By contrast, AeroACES® has been tested against heavyweights since 2000 and fire-hardened by the demands of realtime since 2005.
Another simple reality is that most flight simulation codes are essentially static, unlike AeroACES®, which is a vibrant and growing code. Currently, AeroACES® has dozens of analytical capabilities that make use of flight simulation for broader analyses, while also encompassing a greater number of tasks during operations.
Internally, AeroACES® is a tight code, conforming to double precision and SI units. On the output side, a huge number of base units make possible an enormous number of compound units. You'll probably want speed in something like m/s; but if it's just that kind of day, maybe you need cables/week or furlongs/fortnight to float your boat.
Finally, AeroACES'® components have been built and proven across a wide spectrum of flight vehicles, so it can cover a lot of bases. However, if your project extends into the extraordinary and we have to specialize, AeroACES® can reach an enormous realm of possibilities with its powerful, 64-bit architecture and tightly-maintained code base.
It may not seem fair, but those are the simple FAQs.
