Abstract : A program that determines the angular rates of an aerial target with respect to a fixed point is programmed in Fortran IV. The aerial target is assumed to have a constant speed and its flight path is in a plane perpendicular to the fixed point. The flight path is made up of an arbitrary arrangement of straight lines and circular arcs. The program output is tabular data and variable scale plots generated by a standard on-line printer.
