Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to provide the equations and HP-65 programmable calculator programs for computing ballastic range, height, time-of- flight, and particularly the flight path angle which maximizes ballistic ranges for non-symmetric launch and target positions. A no-atmosphere, non-rotating, spherical Earth is assumed.
