Missile Aerodynamics, Propulsion, and Guidance

When:  Apr 14, 2021 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (ET)
Associated with  Missile Systems: Public Forum
This in-depth online course will cover the most important aspects of missile aerodynamics, propulsion, and guidance. The prediction methods presented in the course are generally simple closed-form analytical expressions that are physics-based, to provide better insight into the primary driving parameters. Typical values of missile parameters and the characteristics of current operational missiles are discussed as well as the enabling subsystems, technologies, and the current/projected state-of-the-art. Multiple videos throughout the lectures illustrate missile system and subsystems development activities.
