dc.description.abstractThe Planetary Entry Systems and Synthesis Tool (PESST) has been under development at the Space Systems Design Laboratory (SSDL) for several years. This framework has the capability to estimate the performance and mass of a hypersonic vehicle using user-defined geometry, hypersonic aerodynamics, flight mechanics, selectable guidance, thermal response and mass estimation. Earth and Mars atmospheres are preloaded with the ability to also use either user-defined or GRAM atmospheric models. Trade studies can be performed by parameter sweeps to gain an excellent understanding of the design space for conceptual studies. This framework is broadly applicable to conceptual studies of EDL, aerocapture and precision and/or pin point landing systems.en_US
