Ballistic Algorithms

SwRI develops ballistic algorithms to determine gun firing angle in order to impact the desired target. The algorithms are based on ammunition and gun characteristics. The algorithm includes sensor data inputs, sensor installation configuration inputs, data validity checks, state estimators, projectile trajectory prediction, camera and Trainable Gun Mount (TGM) boresighting capability, tweak offset capability, and user tweak inputs. The algorithm can include features such as an accuracy degraded indicator, ballistic solution indicator, and user wind velocity at aircraft input.
