[edit] Software Listing

  • USOFS: Uncontrolled SubOrbital Flight Simulator

[edit] Proposed Programs

  • Orbit Insertion Simulator
    • CLLARE's equivalent of USOFS
    • Simulates the trajectory of staged rockets which lift payloads to orbit
    • Estimates thrust requirements for stages, etc.
    • Could probably borrow some basic code from USOFS.
  • Interplanetary Transfer Planning Software
    • Helps plan transfers from arbitrary planets/moons to other arbitary planets/moons
    • Supports Hohmann Transfers, Low Energy Transfers
    • Estimates delta-v requirements, flight times, launch windows, etc.
  • Earth Orbit Simulator
    • Simulates orbits of Earth satellites in fine detail
    • Uses detailed information about Earth's gravity field, rather than assuming sphere of uniform mass
