  3. 3. Advanced Missile Aerodynamics Target AudienceThe Advanced Missile Aerodynamics (AMA) short course is intended for theaerospace professional seeking expert instruction in classic engineering‐levelprediction methodologies used in the estimation of missile and missile‐likevehicle aerodynamics characteristics. Course material has direct applicationto a wide variety of missile classes including tactical missiles, ballistic missiles,launch vehicles, sounding rockets and projectiles. The goal of the course is tohelp you understand the technical foundations of a variety of standard aeroestimation methods. Those who will benefit from attending AMA are: aerodynamics engineers missile defense technologists flight test engineers operations research analysts airframe designers flight controls specialists launch vehicle designers flight simulation specialists missile systems engineers systems engineers wind tunnel test engineers program managers Questions Regarding the AMA Course?

  4. 4. Advanced Missile Aerodynamics What You Will LearnThe Advanced Missile Aerodynamics (AMA) short course features an in‐depthtreatment of engineering‐level estimation methods used to predict theaerodynamics of tactical missiles, ballistic missiles, launch vehicles, soundingrockets and projectiles. You will learn about Slender Body Theory and itspervasive influence in aero prediction methods. You will come to understandthe technical basis of the classic component build‐up approach, body aloneaero prediction methods and the Equivalent Angle‐of‐Attack method forlifting surfaces. You will also be taught the technical details related to amyriad of diverse topics including local surface inclination pressure methods,aerodynamic interference, 6‐DOF aero modeling schemes, area ruling andinlet aerodynamics . The AMA course of study includes the following topics: Slender Body Theory Inlet Aero Effects Equivalent AoA Method Body Crossflow Effects Component Build‐Up Wind Modeling Body Alone Methods Forebody Buffet Pressure Methods Shock‐Expansion Method Aerodynamic Interference Newtonian Theory 6‐DOF Aero Model Schemes Aero Database Sources Launch Vehicle Aero Viscous Interaction High‐Temperature Effects Aerodynamic Uncertainty Flush Airdata Systems Force Accounting Transonic Area Rule Aero Prediction Codes Supersonic Area Rule Historical Programs White Eagle Aerospace Short Course
  5. 5. Advanced Missile Aerodynamics Aviation HistoryMuch has transpired during the 100‐plus years of powered flight. We areboth the beneficiaries and stewards of the technological progress thatprevious generations have bequeathed to us. However, the truth is that agreat many in today’s aerospace workforce have little knowledge of the keypeople, events, and innovations that comprise the history of their ownprofession. While we cannot live in the past, we must learn from it if we areto be successful now and in the future. Further, like our predecessors, wemust protect and preserve this legacy knowledge for succeeding generations.It is for these reasons that White Eagle Aerospace strongly emphasizesaerospace history in the technical courses that it offers. This is done throughthe mediums of special presentations, videos and discussions. Vehiclesaddressed in the Advanced Missile Aerodynamics course include: STANDARD Missile SPRINT ABM Jupiter Redstone Nike Hercules Tomahawk Hellfire Delta SNARK Patriot Falcon 9 Harpoon White Eagle Aerospace Short Course
