Abstract:

This report describes the software contained in the OL-192 Meteorological Data Reduction Program, and is intended to supply complete program description, file definitions, variable descriptions, flow charts, and program listing. The program was written for the Hewlett Packard 9825A Calculator. The OL-192 Meteorological Data Reduction Program quickly converts raw meteorological data into accurate real time meteorological messages. Real time meteorological data produced by the OL-192 increase the artillery commanders capability for a first round hit probability. This increases the effectiveness of friendly artillery, while reducing our weapons exposure to enemy acquisition systems counter battery fires. The OL-192 is used by the artillery meteorological sections to reduce the raw meteorological data received by the Radiosonde Recorder ANTMQ-5 and the winds data received by the Control Recorder C-577, a component of the Radiosonde System ANGMD-1. Input is entered from the calculators console for real flight time computation. The OL-192 program can also calculate messages from the last flight data, punch pressure calibration tapes for radiosondes, and can print the flight information for each entered significant level and zone information for each zone height level.
