Abstract:

The Automatic Rocket Impact Predictor ARIP System was designed to improve rocket impact predictions. Four Aerovan anemometers distributed in the first 100-ft layer provide the data by means of mechanical and electronic coupling to a computer which has been preset for ballistic values of a particular rocket. The computer output then activates an X-Y plotter which has been previously zeroed for all other cumulative displacement effects. Author
