    AeroSandbox - an optimization suite that combines the ease-of-use of NumPy syntax with the power of modern automatic differentiation. AeroSandbox contains dozens of end-to-end-differentiable aerospace physics models, allowing you to simultaneously optimize an aircraft's aerodynamics, structures, propulsion, mission trajectory, stability, and more. Best of all, it is designed to be run on a laptop, not a supercomputer.
