Abstract : The paper presents a computer program that employs a Monte Carlo simulation to determine the probability of destroying a rectangular target with air-to-ground gunnery. The effect of correlation of successive aim points is considered, and bivariate normal aiming error and ballistic dispersion are assumed. A flow chart, a listing of the Fortran program, and a sample program are included. (Author)
