model vertical temperature profiles. JJPRO produces
an alphanumeric product in the JJYY format. The
profiles will extend from the surface to 400 meters or to
the ocean floor depth, whichever is shallower. JJPRO
may be requested for a grid area or for a specific latitude
BALLISTIC WIND AND DENSITY
The Ballistic Wind and Density (BALW) product
provides surface-to-surface, surface-to-air, or rocket-
assisted projectile forecasts for applications like naval
gunfire operations. The product is a tabular listing of
wind direction, speed, and air density for up to 15
altitude zones. It is derived from various atmospheric
analysis and forecast data fields that can be combined
with a user-provided upper air sounding.
Sound Focusing (SNDFO) provides atmospheric
sound propagation loss for bomb blasts or sonic booms
at selected altitudes and bearings. The output uses
alphanumeric characters to represent loss magnitude-
out at specified ranges.

We have provided just the briefest overview of the
highly sophisticated software programs that you will
use as an Aerographers Mate. Although several
schools are available to provide instruction on the actual
use of some of these programs, you will find that the
manuals for these programs provide excellent
instructions. In addition, the menu-driven command
functions inherent in these programs will provide easy
access and operability to even the most complex
