Abstract:

This document describes a simple JOSS program that provides the values of temperature, pressure, and density of the U.S. Standard Atmosphere at any desired altitude from sea level to 700 km. It can be coupled with other JOSS programs where such values are needed as input quantities. For general use, the program permits the ready construction of model atmospheres.
