What simulations exist for tactical missiles that include data such as mass properties, thrust and mass flow profiles, and other aerodynamical data?

DSIAC staff reviewed their managed models and also reached out to modeling experts within the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI), West Virginia University Innovation Center (WVUIC), and the Joint Munitions Effectiveness Models (JMEM) Production Center. DSIAC staff also researched models in the NASA Open Source Software repository as well as open source codes. It was found that the U.S. government and academia owned codes with relevant tactical missile simulations were typically integrated into larger model frameworks that are not easily separated, though some open source codes were found that could fit the requestors need. A consolidated list of the findings were delivered to the inquirer.
