Abstract : The report is one of six volumes providing user's manuals for a series of computer programs. The report describes the modifications to Option 6 of the widely used Six-Degree-of-Freedom Computer Program. The report supplements the user's manual prepared by the Research Division, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, and contains the modification to Option 6 to allow the calculation of trajectories for ablating spherically blunted cones at zero angle of attack. It is not the intent of the report to discuss the complete Six-Degree-of-Freedom Computer Program. (Author)
