Six Degrees of Freedom: Simulation and Missile Guidance Control

Whether you are a computer scientist or an engineer working on a large-scale simulation, you will require an in-depth knowledge of Six Degree of Freedom (6-DOF). In this course, you will gain a strong foundation in 6-DOF theory, and then you will become an expert in the real-world application of the modeling and simulation of aerspace vehicles. Understanding the application of degrees of freedom is critical to development of a system simulation. This course will deepen your expertise in missile and munitions controls system design.

    Takeaways Include:
  • Participants will understand and apply complex aerodynamic concepts.
  • Participants will be able to build complex models and simulations.
  • Participants can begin or deepen careers in the aerospace modeling and simulation industry
