The first function of the program is to generate a blast shelter defense posture of a specified cost level for whatever population data is supplied, and then to calculate the fatalities which that posture permits for a range of attack levels. The second function of the program is to compute, for any cost level specified, upper and lower bounds for the optimum defense performance at each attack level - the bounding procedure. The third function is to evaluate independently the cell model by comparing results using the cell model with results using a separate laydown method - the targeting model. Since the targeting model is used quite separately from the rest of the program, that portion of the program is discussed in Appendix B. The program itself has the same three divisions with a driver program which controls the selection of the program to be run. If the driver data is read in, parameters are set, and then the portion of the program containing the desired program called an overlay is read in. The desired program is executed using subroutines in the main portion of the program plus the proper overlay. The next three sections describe how to use the program in detail. The first describes the options and parameters to be set, the second gives sample data decks for the different runs and the data sequences for all possible types of runs, and the third describes the operations of the subroutines.
