The project carries out simulations that can be calculated by DC and deals with aviation and aerospace.

Currently, three simulations are running:

  • TrackJack: trajectory optimization of launchers, satellites and probes
  • On The Moon: simulation of Moon's near-surface exosphere
  • Extreme Machine: analysis of dynamic systems of exploration-rovers

Further simulation ideas are very wellcome.

Project milestones

  • December 21st, 2009 - Graduate colloquium "Rechnergestützte Methode zur Optimierung der 2D-Aufstiegsbahn einer mehrstufigen Trägerrakete unter Berücksichtigung des Massenverhältnisses von Treibstoff zur Nutzlast" at the University of Bremen in Mechanical Engineering / Aviation and Aerospace. Already in the thesis is a section on distributed computing with BOINC included. The thesis is the basis for the jack-track application.
