Abstract : The use of a generalized IBM 7094 digital com-puter program is here described. With this program, a three-degree-of-freedom point-mass trajectory may be optimized using the steepest descent method. Complete generality is maintained by allowing the user to specify via input the actual variables to be used for each of the following: (1) a maximum of six control variables, (2) a maximum of six in-flight constraints, (3) a maximum of 10 end constraints, (4) a maximum of 15 state variables, (5) a trajectory cutoff variable, and (6) a payoff function variable.
