Title: Study of the Unguided Rocket Effectiveness
Author(s): Cristian-Emil Moldoveanu   Sophie Buono   Pamfil Åžomoiag      

Abstract: For the unguided rockets it is essential to obtain the minimum errors possible so that the ammunition can hit the aimed target at the expected point. It is necessary to evaluate how a variation, even negligible, of one of the firing initial conditions could influence the location of the point of impact.
