This thesis discusses the conversion of the MOD6DF computer program for use on the IBM-360 computer at the Naval Postgraduate School. The functioning program was modified to investigate the impact miss distance for the Supersonic Tactical Missile. When the initial y-displacement error exceeded 1800 feet, the missile did not acquire the target. All errors smaller than this resulted in miss distances within 0.5 feet of the target. The midcourse guidance reference altitude was changed to reflect a sea-skimming missile. This simulation ran and impact was recorded. An attempt at adding random noise to the homing seeker was tried, but revealed that more information is required on this topic. The MOD6DF computer program was successfully converted and altered to run using the simplified ramjet model.
