The performance data contained in the Naval Air Training and Operating Procedures Standardization (NATOPS) manuals for Naval aircraft are presented primarily in graphical form. Interpretation of these graphical charts is time consuming and susceptable to error. By using multiple regression analysis and other curve fitting techniques the graphical charts can be modeled with closed-form analytical equations. These equations can then be used in computer programs which perform the same functions as the original charts but with greater accuracy, speed and simplicity. This thesis conducts the above analysis on some of the more commonly used NATOPS performance data for the A-6 aircraft model. The result is the A-6E/A-6E TRAM/KA-6D NATOPS Calculator Aided Performance Planning System (NCAPPS) which is a library of A-6 performance software developed for the Hewlett-Packard HP-41CV hand-held programmable calculator. Procedures for developing the analytical models are described and a user's manual documenting the system is included.
