JSBSim is an object-oriented (C++), multi-platform, non linear 6 DoF, Flight Dynamics Model (FDM). The FDM is essentially the physics & math model that defines the movement of an aircraft, rocket, etc., under the forces and moments applied to it using the various control mechanisms and from the forces of nature. JSBSim can be run as a standalone, batch-mode flight simulator (no graphical displays), or integrated with FlightGear or other flight simulator.

The aircraft models included in this project and distribution do not include any proprietary, sensitive, or classified data. This should be rather obvious. All data is derived from textbooks, freely available technical reports, or other public data.

Likewise, no proprietary code is included. All code included within JSBSim has been developed on a volunteer basis using publicly available information, and is often directly linked to a particular textbook, for educational reference.

Features

  • Nonlinear 6 DoF (Degree of Freedom)
  • XML configuration files
  • Models aircraft, rotorcraft, rockets, ...
  • Rotational Earth (Coriolis & centrifugal effect)
  • WGS84 spheroid
  • US Standard Atmosphere
  • Extensible
  • Object Oriented design
  • Platform independent

User Reviews

  • Great tool for flight dynamic simulations. It would be great if new features could be added for creating missile models and thrust vectoring controls.

  • Absolutely great!

  • All my core work with flight dynamics is based on JSBSim.

  • JSBSim is a wonderful project with visionary leadership.

  • good and complex. i am working on using JSBSim
