  • Abstract:
    Modeling and simulation is often used to study

    the physical world when observation may not be

    practical. The overall goal of a recent and ongoing

    simulation tool project has been to provide a

    documented, lifecycle-managed, multi-processor

    capable, stochastic simulation capability enabling

    analysis of procedures and equipment for aircraft

    flight in the national airspace system (NAS). The

    tool is a Monte Carlo-based computer simulation

    program that contains the stochastic models of most

    components of the NAS, including navigation aids,

    surveillance systems, pilots, aircraft, air traffic

    controllers, and weather. It is also combined with

    discrete artifacts such as FAA database-supplied

    runway sizes and configurations, and obstacles. In

    addition, the tool possesses a fast-time airframetype-

    specific kinematic aircraft model, a highperformance

    random number generator, a precise

    WGS-84-compliant elliptical earth model, and a

    graphical user interface integrating worldwide

    photo-realistic airport depictions and real-time

    three-dimensional animation.

    This paper presents an overview of the

    software tool and its formulation, including

    programming languages, environments, and other

    development tools; selection, design, and

    implementation of the mathematical models; and

    reviews the verification and validation processes.
