Abstract : Three techniques for computing the launcher angles required for an unguided rocket to obtain a desired theoretical impact are discussed. These methods take into consideration the fact that the rocket will deviate from its nominal course because of the wind it encounters. One method, a field technique, utilizes the wind weighting principle. The other two utilize an iterative technique on a computer for determining launcher settings. (Author)
