Advanced aerospace vehicle design requires special design features that should meet the mission requirements of high payload to weight ratio in the case of space launchers and low radar cross-section for specific missiles/aircraft. The conventional design packages used are discussed in relation to their constraints. An interactive integrated design approach to eliminate the constraints imposed by individual design modules through interface design modules is discussed. Typical examples of such interface design modules are given. Also, a computer network necessary for an interactive integrated design approach interfacing the mainframe with a computer-aided design and drafting system and parallel processing is presented.
