The mission of the SimSAC project is to enhance the conceptual design and early preliminary design processes by developing an integrated digital design and decision making environment where for any given aircraft configuration the aerodynamic information for stability and control assessment can be computed at some user nominated fidelity in the conceptual design phase (see figure).
