Aerospace Blockset

Model, simulate, and analyze aerospace vehicle dynamics

Aerospace Blockset™ provides Simulink® reference examples and blocks for modeling, simulating, and analyzing high-fidelity aircraft, rotocraft, 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.
