Abstract

Recent advances in computing power and speed allow designers to simulate thousands, if not millions, of design alternatives more cheaply and quickly than ever before. These advancements provide new opportunities to revolutionize trade space exploration for complex dynamic systems in the aerospace industry, among others. In this paper, we demonstrate our multi-dimensional data visualization software, the Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) Trade Space Visualizer (ATSV), to search for optimal impulsive trajectories in a two-burn plane change spacecraft maneuver. This problem is formulated as a multi-objective optimization problem where it is desirable to explore various competing objectives.
