Aerospace Systems Design

The BAC Laboratory does extensive work in the Multi-Disciplinary Design Analysis and Optimization (MDAO) of complex aerospace systems. This includes aircraft, spacecraft, and launch vehicle design and performance analysis. To facilitate this work, numerous tools are used, many developed by the BAC Lab students for both disciplinary analysis as well as optimization implementation.
