Abstract : A computer program has been developed which is capable of analyzing the dive performance of any general air vehicle configuration. This program can be used to determine if vehicle design critieria can be met under a dive condition. This program was written in FORTRAN VERSION 4.8 LEVEL 518 for use on a CYBER computer and uses four supporting subroutines. This report describes the analytical development and logic development for the program. In addition, it includes a user description and complete listing of the program. (Author)
