Abstract:

The memorandum describes an IBM computer program to compute the probability of killing a rectangular or line target with salvos, sticks, or patterns of weapons. It is considered that the weapons are delivered with a bivariate normal aiming error and that the individual rounds are distributed around their mean points of impact within the group with bivariate normal ballistic dispersions. The conditional kill probabilities of individual weapons are taken into account. Flow charts, a listing of the FORTRAN program, and sample problems are included. Author
