Abstract : Navigational errors for two ballistic missile navigational systems-one gimbaled and one strapped-down-are analyzed. Equations are derived for studying navigational errors resulting from sensor errors. Navigational errors at end of guidance (burnout) are determined and then propagated to the target by orbit-sensitivity equations. FORTRAN V program listing for each system are presented in Appendixes A and B, respectively. Flow charts for both systems are given in Appendix C. (Author)
