Abstract:

KWIK, an algorithm for calculating munition expenditures for smoke screeningobscuration in tactical situations, is described. Nine basic meteorological inputs plus fundamental definitions of meteorological optics and Gaussian diffusion theory are utilized in the approach. A flowchart of the algorithm is also given with the software program listing in FORTRAN, BASIC, and HPL programming languages. Author
