Abstract : This report has been written to document the changes made to Teledyne Systems Company's (TSC) Attack Helicopter Air-to-Air (ATA) Fire Control System Simulation model (AIRTOAIR(. The AIRTOAIR Simulation was used as a tool by TSC to assess the effectiveness of several mechanizations of fire control equations. These equations were being formulated with the intent of becoming a product improvement to the existing attack helicopters, the AH-lS COBRA and the AH-64 APACHE. The model simulates a one-on-one, non-dueling, close-in combat scenario using the automatic cannon. Since it is a fire control system representation, all of the sensors that feed information to the fire control computer (FCC) are modelled. The changes to ARTOAR are discussed at length and the coding required for each change is also provided. Applications of the changes to specific projects are briefly discussed when appropriate.
