Abstract : The purpose of this study is to introduce a measure by which the information content, as possessed by the trajectory generated by a projectile, pertinent to the capability of a weapon system can be characterized. With the use of this concept and some appropriate mathematical tools a few immediate results are obtained. Furthermore, a characterization of the capability of a weapon system in terms of the trajectory information is given. From mathematical point of view, the development is trivial, for it merely translates some set theoretic notions and properties into the physical setting. (Author)
