During conceptual design speed and accuracy are often at odds. Specifically in the realm of launch vehicles, optimizing the ascent trajectory requires a larger pool of analytical power and expertise. Experienced analysts working on familiar vehicles can produce optimal trajectories in a short time frame, however whenever either "experienced" or "familiar" is not applicable the optimization process can become quite lengthy. In order to construct a vehicle agnostic method an established globaldoi:10.2514/6.2017-5353 fatcat:ulu4db6edfh77mr43fr36s3y34
