Abstract
Naval Gunfire Support (NGFS) is a critical capability of the U.S. Navy, and is used to protect amphibious forces. Often, the execution of NGFS is time-critical. The accuracy of the shooting (called fall-of-shot) and the time it takes the gun crew to shoot the gun (called the gun cycle time), are two critical attributes of a mission. If the rounds land on or near the target, and if the gun crew can fire the gun quickly, the NGFS mission is most likely to be successful.
