Abstract : The Microcomputer Missile Performance Software System (MPS) consists of ten integrated Computer Software Components (CSCs) that are used to assess ballistic missile performance, and to plan, generate, and evaluate timed laydowns of ballistic missile forces on target sets, subject to operational and nuclear vulnerability constraints. Within the MPS, ALM is the CSC responsible for assigning RVs to DGZs and for scheduling missile launches so as to minimize the span of either missile launch times or RV arrival times. The MPS is designed to execute efficiently on AT class microcomputers, running under an MS-DOs operating system. Over 95% of the MPS software is written in FORTRAN, with the remainder being assembly code. This manual provides a comprehensive specification of the AIM CSC and is intended to support the ALM maintenance programmer during the MPS's operational lifetime.
