Trajectory simulations are tools to compute the flight path and flight parameters of munitions. We present an ontology-based object-oriented reuse infrastructure and discuss the underlying model driven development methodology. The strategic objective is to make domain knowledge and software reusable across a wide variety of trajectory simulation projects.
