Abstract:

This paper develops a methodology for determining the characteristics of candidate small-arms rounds that satisfy a given set of military requirements. Ballistics-related information required for the methodology and of general interest to the small-arms field is also presented. The intended user of the methodology is the military project officer or analyst rather than the munitions developer consequently, the approach taken is primarily operational rather than technical.
