The GFCS MK86 solves the ballistics problem for the 5"/54 gun iteratively utilizing table look-ups. Each ballistics parameter table is sub-divided two-dimensionally , corresponding to selected elevation and slant range intervals. The final value for each parameter is found by interpolating between parameter values evaluated at elevation angles which bracket the actual elevation angle. This thesis describes the method of determining the ballistics solution for AA cartesian ballistics. A description of the ballistics geometry and of the model utilized is presented, together with a FORTRAN simulation of the 2viK86 computer program and a listing of the ballistics tables used in this system.
