The VENOM Ballistics Solver (VBS) is the first small arms ballistics solver properly computing the wind’s influence on a bullet. VBS contains all standard drag curves and can support designer rounds. VBS is available as a stand-alone program under Windows or Android OS.
VBS was created specifically for small arms weapons ranging from 5.56 mm rounds to 12.7mm rounds. Computations achieve nearly the accuracy of a full 6DOF using a three degree of freedom (3DOF) modified point mass numerical solver that considers velocity, time of flight, and bullet drop as a function of the round’s position downrange until the round reaches the target using the current environmental conditions. VBS fully accounts for Coriolis effects in both the vertical and horizontal direction of fire, spin drift, and aerodynamic jump (the Magnus effect).
