Abstract : Under contract to Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace (KDA), Nielsen Engineering & Research (NEAR) combined and extended store separation simulation code NEAR STRLNCH and aerodynamic prediction code NEAR MISDL to simulate and analyze launch and separation of the KDA Penguin missile from a helicopter. One of the objectives was to enable the running of many cases in relatively short time on readily available computer platforms. The resulting MISDL/KDA code was validated by comparing to available free stream wind tunnel data as a function of component buildup and for a variety of wing deployment geometries. The combined launch simulation method STRLNCH/KDA with MISDL/KDA was validated by comparing predictions to flight test data.
