PRODAS

Projectile Rocket Ordnance Design and Analysis Software (PRODAS)

 PRODAS is an integrated collection of analyses in an environment designed to accelerate the design process for the munitions designer.  Capabilities include: 

  • Geometric modeling
  • Mass properties
  • Aerodynamic prediction using multiple codes
  • Flight simulation of ballistic and guided projectiles
  • GNC prototype development
  • Dispersion prediction
  • Control authority prediction
  • Firing tables
  • Interior ballistics
  • Terminal effects
  • System effectiveness simulations
  • Structural analyses including in-bore balloting and case/chamber interaction
  • Software development kit for integration of other analyses

Physics Based Radar Reduction & Trajectory Reconstruction

RADAR is a software product for the reduction of live fire ballistic test data captured with a doppler tracking radar. It uses a physics-based model to re-construct the complete trajectory and determine drag and spin as well as rocket motor burn characteristics (burn on/off and thrust) when a rocket motor is present.  The trajectory reconstruction is accomplished by simultaneously fitting the measured radial velocity, radar elevation, radar azimuth and spin data.  RADAR contains bi-directional interfaces with Arrow Tech’s PRODAS software.
