Spaceplane designers need to be able to rapidly obtain estimations of aerodynamic and stability parameters throughout the re-entry flight. This aids with design changes and trade-offs regarding the stability characteristics of the design. This software was developed with a focus on stability analysis in the Terminal Area Energy Management phase ...

Interplanetary missions use gravitational slingshots around planetary bodies to adjust their heliocentric velocity or inclination for quite some time. The momentum exchange that can be achieved during a so-called gravity assist is limited by the mass of the planetary body. To overcome this limitation, an aerogravity assist was proposed, a...

In a previous study, the optimal re-entry trajectory of Hyperion-2 has been derived. The mission of the vehicle is to measure hypersonic boundary-layer transition, a phenomena in which the laminar boundary layer turns into a turbulent boundary layer. This is an important feature in hypersonic flow to investigate, as it introduces peak heating...
