Abstract : The report gives, for the antiaircraft problem of level flight, constant speed and any ballistic data, the mathematical analysis, and a FORTRAN program of projectile-target miss distance as a function of errors in slant range, slant range rate, azimuth, azimuth rate, elevation, elevation rate, and gun-platform out-of-level. The FORTRAN program prints a miss distance table as a function of the above errors for equal increments in predicted slant range, present slant range, or target time along course. The program also provides the option of printing discrete graphs of miss distance as a function of target time along course for each of the above errors sources. A second FORTRAN program gives projectile-target miss distance as a function of errors in projectile time of flight. (Author)
