Abstract : This report describes a database system developed by the Air Operations Division (AOD) for aircraft flight dynamic models. A new database format has been established to meet AOD's flight dynamic and performance requirements. A program has been written to create program source code to read and interpolate/extrapolate data stored in the database format. The major advantage of the new database format is that all the information required to read and interpolate/extrapolate a data set is contained within the database. This report describes (1) a typical example of the database format, (2) technical descriptions of the syntax, (3) methods of interpolation/extrapolation, (4) method of database interfacing, and (5) procedures for database use.
