Abstract : The objective of the Working Group is to bring together a panel of nationally recognized authorities in the field of mathematical modeling to study a selection of existing models, to select the better of the current models and to outline needed experiments to insure development of improved models for future use. A model is defined as the mathematical representation of an optically directed ground based anti-aircraft system. Models to be considered will be limited to those which depict ground-to-air gun or free rocket systems employed against air-breathing aircraft, from the instant when optical acquisition of the target is possible to that when the projectile is intended to have its terminal effect.
