Latitude and longitude (decimal coordinates, separated by a comma):
Or type in the name of a place, and a GeoCoding service will be used to look it up:
The SSPK (Single Shot Probability of Kill) is the probability that a single launch will completely destroy a given target.
|Circular Error Probable*:
|Accuracy of weapon
|Explosive power of weapon
|Blast pressure required*:
|Blast pressure required to destroy target
|Total system reliability
|Diameter of a circle encompassing 95% of the target
MISSILEMAP is an interactive data visualization by Alex Wellerstein, an associate professor of Science and Technology Studies in the College of Arts and Letters at the Stevens Institute of Technology.
MISSILEMAP is designed to make it easy to see the relationship between missile range, accuracy, and warhead size. It is especially developed for assistance in understanding the power of nuclear warheads and long-range missiles.
For more information about using this application, the making of this application, the limitations of the underlying mathematical models, and various simplifying assumptions applied to this visualization, please read the FAQ.
