Abstract
The note describes a method (developed originally by Bullock) which enables to calculate the chance of killing a target by a burst of fire from a rapid-firing AA gun, allowing for the effect of autocorrelation of aiming errors, in the case in which the autocorrelation is Markovian. The method depends on the numerical computation of a series of convolution integrals. A FORTRAN program was written to implement the method. The program listing, and a brief description, is given in the note. The program coped satisfactorily with engagements up to 70 rounds.
