Fact sheet | CGHOST: A new paradigm for rocket design

DST in collaboration with the US Air Force Research Laboratory has developed a new paradigm for mission-based propulsion system design. 

CGHOST* directly couples detailed physics-based rocket modules with vehicle trajectory optimisation — all nested within a global genetic algorithm. The result is a new standard for high-confidence rocket design. 

CGHOST has been recognised internationally for the leap forward it offers in system design and evaluation of military systems.
