Good Morning
My name is Hevander Da Costa. I'm a memeber of the University of Maryland Rocket club. I was wondering if matlab has packages specifically for rocketry, and trajectory modeling at supersonic speeds. Currently were are using programs like RASAero II for trajectory modeling and Altus Metrum's telemega altimeter with accompanying AltOS software. We would like to know if there are any MathWorks alternatives.

The Aerospace toolbox is likely to be the closest to what you want. I don't use it so don't know much about it, but it seems to be a pretty advanced set of tools and perhaps some of them do what you're after.

I'd imagine that at least some of the applications described on the MATLAB and Simulink for Space Systems page required modeling of trajectories at supersonic speeds. Searching for "supersonic" on the User Stories page didn't find any hits, but searching for "hypersonic" did find one from NASA.
