When using EDSVS, why is the yaw moment of inertia that I enter in the Vehicle Inertias dialog diferent from the one reported in the Vehicle Data output report?

The value for yaw moment of intertia that you enter in the Vehicle Inertias dialog is the value about the vehicle's center of gravity, as expected.  EDSVS is based on a model developed at the University of Michigan, TBST.  In this model, the yaw moment of inertia is resolved about the geometric center of the vehicle.  EDSVS uses the same logic.  As for all variables, the value given in the output report is the value actually used by the program.
