Feasibility analysis of the modified point mass trajectory model for the need of ground artillery fire control systems

Leszek Baranowski
The work shows computational results of the effect of a simplified mathematical model of the flight dynamics of a spin-stabilized projectile on the accuracy and speed of calculation parameters for the projectile trajectory (in the entire range of operating quadrant elevation of the barrel and possible perturbations of the conditions firing) to determine an appropriate mathematical model for the automated fire control systems of ground artillery.
