ME4704 Missile Design

Conceptual missile design methodology centered around a student team design project, focused on a military need defined by a Request-for-Proposal. It stresses the application aerodynamics, propulsion, flight mechanics, cost, supportability, stability and control and provides the student with their application to design. Consideration is given to trade-offs among propulsion requirements, air loads, quality sensors, guidance laws, quality, controls, and structural components.
