Help on Project
Posted:

I am new to Mathematica and need help with a project. I have acceleration data from the flight path of a missile that I would like to integrate to get velocity and position relative to the launch point of the missile. The acceleration information is referenced to a body axis which translates and rotates with respect to the launch (inertial) axis. I want to be able to plot in 2D and 3D the flight path to impact of the target and determine impact angle and velocity. As I mentioned, I am not familiar with all the inner workings of Mathematica and would appreciate any help building a front end to the acceleration data that would allow future data to be analyzed in the same fashion. Please email constructive suggestions to salmonke@jupiter.hill.af.mil. Any and all help is appreciated. Keith Salmon
