Peer Reviewed

Abstract: INTRODUCTION THE PURPOSE OF THIS PAPER is to present a simplified analysis of the problem of precision level bombing. Results are given which, while not yielding the complete real-world solut,ion, do provide a basis for understanding and indicate orders-of-magnitude for the error sources considered. These error sources include release point position errors, velocity errors, and heading errors derived without consideration of atmospheric effects.
