Abstract : The work completed in this Phase II SBIR developed and delivered two completely tested software packages. The first was RAGE (Rapid Aero-shape GEnerator) and the second was TrajView (real time 3-D trajectory viewer). Rage helps determine and display 3-D, optimal, geometric aeroshape designs and analysis results. Rage used Free-Form Deformation, optimization software (GptdesX), hypersonic/supersonic aerodynamic prediction software (HAB), and Moviestar for geometry and finite element modeling, computer graphics model visualization. TrajView displays and animates (in real time) the trajectories of multi-body or multi-trajectory predictions and their associated data. TrajView was written in Silicon Graphics IRIS Inventor.
