Abstract : The construction of a nomogram to determine the launcher settings necessary to obtain a theoretical impact for an unguided rocket is discussed. The fact that the rocket will deviate from its nominal course because of the wind it encounters is taken into account. The nomogram presents a four-dimensional graph of launcher settings as functions of the theoretical wind displacements. This plot is easy to use in field operations. (Author)
