The Joint Army/Navy Rotorcraft Analysis and Design (JANRAD) computer program has been developed at the Naval Postgraduate School to aid in the preliminary design of rotorcraft and has been updated to include a Graphical User Interface (Gul). This thesis is a continuation of the program focusing on stability and control analysis. The trim solution for a specified flight condition is computed from the Performance module of the program. This trim solution is then used to compute stability derivatives for the specified flight condition and a linear state space model is created. This solution can then be used to perform various time and frequency domain analyses or can be saved to a file for future use
