Abstract : A description is given of a computer program, AERO 1, which computes a two degree of freedom, point mass trajectory. A sketch is given of the form of the analytics with a thorough description of the input. The program solves the onedimensional equation of spin independently of the point mass trajectory, except that the dynamic pressure computed by the point mass solution for any instant of time is a parameter of the spin problem. This spin is used to compute the classical ballistic stability criteria, if desired. A description and proof of a technique for exactly simulating the effects of constant crosswind and/or range wind is appended. (Author)
