Abstract : The implementation of a no-drop bomb simulation system on a micro-computer is presented. The bomb trajectory algorithms supplied by Mr. Lee Thomson, China Lake Naval Weapons Center, formed a base for the simulation programs. The simulation program was written in FORTRAN to test the four phases of the system: tracking, position and velocity fitting, trajectory simulation, and impact point calculation. Translated PL/M programs form a base for the micro-computer implementation. (Author)
