    A computer code has been developed for estimating the aerodynamic characteristics of cruciform missile configurations at high angles of attack (upto 30xB0;), with13; arbitrary control deflections (xB1;25xB0;) and non-zero roll angle (0 xA3; 0 xA3; 90xB0;). The prediction code is based on the equivalent angle of attack technique. It combines semi-empirical methods, theoretical methods and correlated data bases. The code has been validated over a wide range of missile configurations and flight parameters. The overall capabilities of the code have been compared with nine other missile aeroprediction codes. These studies have demonstrated the capability of the code for preliminary design of missile configurations.
