Abstract : The determination of the optimal distribution of aimpoints is examined for weapons that fire fragmenting projectiles against mobile targets. A finite difference approximation which reduces the problem to a mathematical programming problem is developed. Computational considerations for this nonlinear programming problem are discussed.
