- MSET. Reads the airfoil coordinate file and generates the initial grid.
- MSES. Calculates the flow solution.
- MPLOT. Plots the flow solution.

- AIRSET. Used to examine and manipulate multielement airfoil geometry, which can be then be output as an airfoil file for grid initialization in MSET.
- EDP. A visual "editor" of specified surface pressure distributions which are input for inverse design calculations in MSES.
- MPOLAR. Same as MSES, but sweeps over a range of specified parameter values.
- PPLOT. Plots the results of MPOLAR in a standard drag-polar form.
- SPLOT. Plots the results of MPOLAR in a standard Mach drag-rise form.
- LINDOP. Combines the parameter-sensitivity output from MSES to perform single-point or multi-point airfoil optimization, for a variety of built-in or user-specified objective functions and constraints.

- RAE 2822 airfoil coordinate file. This can also be input/output with XFOIL using its LOAD/ISAVE commands. blade.rae.
- RAE 2822 solution setup and parameter file. mses.rae.
