Abstract : This program provides for the simulation of powered six-degree-of-freedom trajectories over a spherical rotating earth for those vehicles which have a fore and aft section, which may or may not rotate at different spin rates, but, which rotate about a common longitudinal axis. The program does not permit any mass or inertial asymmetries, but it can be run using either a rolling or nonrolling vehicle axis system and a variable integration time step. (Author)
