The purpose of this report is to assess the feasibility of attacking a target with the simultaneous use of air and artillery. A method for generating circular error probability as a function of release altitude is presented. Techniques for determining probabilities of kill for the air attack system, artillery system, and for the combined air-artillery attack system are examined. From the probability of kill information and from the rate of fire (delivery) of the systems, expected time to target destruction calculations are developed. The restrictions that allow the use of the combined air-artillery attack system are presented, as well as a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of this system of attack.
