Aerospace Blockset™ provides Simulink® blocks for modeling, simulating, and analyzing aerospace vehicles. You can incorporate vehicle dynamics, validated models of the flight environment, and pilot behavior, and then connect your model to the FlightGear Flight Simulator to visualize simulation results.
With Aerospace Blockset you can use aerodynamic coefficients or Data Compendium (Datcom) derivatives to model fixed-wing, rotary-wing, and multirotor vehicles. Prebuilt component libraries let you design GNC algorithms and model actuator dynamics and the propulsion subsystem. Built-in aerospace math operations and coordinate system and spatial transformations let you describe the behavior of three-degrees-of-freedom (3DOF) and six-degrees-of-freedom (6DOF) bodies.
The blockset includes validated environment models for atmosphere, gravity, wind, geoid height, and magnetic field to represent flight conditions and increase simulation fidelity. Flight control analysis tools let you analyze the dynamic response and flying qualities of aerospace vehicles. To complete your analysis, you can visualize the vehicle in flight directly from Simulink with standard cockpit instruments and using the prebuilt FlightGear Flight Simulator interface.
