Abstract : This research contribution presents a usage manual for an IBM 7090 computer program. The program employs a Monte Carlo simulation to determine the probability of destroying individual point targets within a target complex with one or more groups of weapons. It is assumed that the groups are delivered with a bivariate normal aiming error and that the individual weapons are distributed with an independent bivariate normal ballistic dispersion. The program is designed for conditional damage data for fragmentation generated by an IBM 7090 program furnished by the U. S. Naval Ordnance Test Station (NOTS), China Lake. A flow chart, a listing of the FORTRAN program and a sample problem are included.
