Abstract : This volume is a programmer's manual for the subroutines of the AFAADS gun simulation model. Part A is a detailed glossary of all variables by subroutine. Part B describes the formats for the input flight path and terrain data, weapon system parameters, atmospheric data for the infrared detection subroutine, and vulnerability data. Part C describes the output options from the simulation which include the engagement details, an echo of the input weapon system parameters, and summary statistics. Sample output is provided. A program listing is provided in Part D.
