Abstract:

This program provided the Air Force an existing target description computer program which was demonstrated on the Eglin Air Force Base CDC 6600 computer by completing two check runs. The subsequent formulation, coding, and incorporation of two improvements in the program which provided a shielding capability and the input of standard geometrical shapes resulted in a modified program being adopted for use with the Eglin Air Force Base computer. The revised program was demonstrated by computing the presented area of the fuel tanks of a generic fighter aircraft, and making perspective plots of the target with hidden lines removed, using the SC4020 plotter. This target description and vulnerability program also provides the Air Force with a unique tool for making rapid descriptive and vulnerability assessments of targets through the use of high speed computers and automatic plotting equipment.
