Abstract : An overview of simulation model methodology is presented with emphasis on how these techniques may be applied in the missile simulation environment. Because most missile simulations produce time series output which must be matched to corresponding flight or laboratory test data, the primary focus is on time series methods. Univariate spectral analysis and cross spectral analysis techniques useful in simulation model validation are described. Examples are given using both artificially generated and real data. (Author)
