A comprehensive software for analysis and design of full-scale, multi-stage launch vehicle systems.
An indispensable tool for space agencies, space companies, academia, and/or just about anyone interested in rocket science. It is intended for use in actual CONOPS applications as well as for educational purposes.
The main application areas for this software are:
Astrosoft Rocket Pro presents substantiated methods for use:
The following is a broad overview of the tool's selected capabilities with descriptions.
In the primary GUI, user enters the Classical Orbital Elements, Current Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), Dry masses of all stages as well as boosters (if applicable). A preview of the intended orbit is displayed in the GUI.
In the Propulsion GUI, the necessary data such as number of engines, mass-flow rate, propellant type, propellant mass, and mixture ratio are entered.
This section designs the ideal nozzle geometry for a quasi-2D diverging nozzle for supersonic flows. The calculated optimum throat area produces the maximum amount of thrust for the given ambient pressure and combustion chamber parameters. It also makes mesh for simulating the nozzle shape and plots the results.
Computes the optimal values for structural and propellant masses for each stage.
Determine the dimensions of different sections of the rocket.
After entering the data, several design parameters such as the following are calculated and a preview of the rocket is displayed in the GUI:
Nose fineness ratio
Enables users to examine the static stability and calculate Center of Gravity (CG), Center of Pressure (CP) and Static Margin (SM) as well as the mass properties of the launch vehicle.
Designs optimal trajectory using sophisticated optimization techniques.
Calculates gains and optimal control inputs such as lateral and forward acceleration commands, nozzle gimbal angle command, velocity error command.
Checks if the rocket's structure can withstand the external and internal loads and stresses during flight.
In this GUI, a 3D animation of the flight is displayed. The simulation can be controlled at any time and all data relating to the powered phase are displayed instantly.
Numerous plots and simulations are provided to replicate the physical behavior and performance of the rocket as it would demonstrate in actual flight.
