Developments in computational hardware and simulation software have come to a point where it is possible to use whole mission simulation in the preliminary design. This paper address some key issues needed to realize this. These are, system simulation using distributed solvers for robust large scale simulation, time scale compression to deal with the widely different time scales involved, e.g. the transient behaviour of control surface actuators, to the tracking of fuel consumption. The application is a flight simulation model with subsystems such as control surface actuators. In this way it is possible to do real time simulation (RTS) and faster than real time simulation (FRTS) of rather complex systems.
Using such models it is possible to do design analysis, e.g sensitivity analysis and trade of analysis, as well as design optimisation, In this paper this is demonstrated on a flight simulation model with subsystems, such as control surface actuators.
