Aerospace Blockset™ provides Simulink® reference examples and blocks for modeling, simulating, and analyzing high-fidelity aircraft, rotorcraft, and spacecraft platforms. The blockset includes vehicle dynamics, validated models of the flight environment, and blocks for pilot behavior, actuator dynamics, and propulsion. Built-in aerospace math operations and coordinate system and spatial transformations let you represent atmospheric vehicle and spacecraft motion and orientation. To examine simulation results, you can connect visualization blocks, including photorealistic views, to your model.
Aerospace Blockset provides standard model architectures for building reusable vehicle platform models. These models can support flight and mission analysis; conceptual studies; detailed mission design; guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) algorithm development; software integration testing; and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing for applications in autonomous flight, radar, and communications.
For atmospheric flight platforms, including rotorcraft, use blocks to model dynamics, perform simulations, and understand system behavior under various flight and environment conditions.
Model, simulate, and analyze the motion and dynamics of spacecraft and satellite constellations. Use solar system ephemeris data to calculate the position and velocity of celestial objects over time.
Visualize and understand aerospace vehicle dynamics by using cockpit flight instruments, connecting to the FlightGear flight simulator, or connecting your simulation to a photorealistic 3D environment with Unreal Engine®
Model vehicle components, such as linear and nonlinear actuators, human pilot behavior, and engine systems.
Flight and Mission Analysis
Use templates and functions to perform advanced analysis on the dynamic response of aerospace vehicles. Perform high-level mission analysis with the
satelliteScenario object from Aerospace Toolbox™.
