(MVS) 1.5 includes support for OpenGL graphics, high fidelity dynamics models, and a TCP/IP networking interface. It also provides users with an object-oriented architecture that can incorporate additional expansion by users.
Princeton has aimed MVS at applications like aerospace vehicle flight control system design, trade studies, air-to-air combat, satellite formation flying, air traffic control and separation analysis. You can integrate actuator, sensor and aerodynamics code into the simulation using MVS’s own APIs.
MVS ships with included models of an F-16 fighter, CH-53 helicopter, solar sail and a maneuvering spacecraft with reaction wheels and monopropellant hydrazine thrusters. It also comes with a CAD package that enables you to create new aircraft and spacecraft using imported DXF and OBJ graphics files.
MultiVehicleSim 1.5 has been created for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. More details are available from Princeton Satellite Systems’ Web site.
