Nature of problem:
To calculate the predicted activity of an ion irradiated target. The expected range of ion energies is between 1MeV and 200MeV; this is the range of the available ion cross section data.
The program loads cross section data from the TENDL database and trajectory data from a SRIM  simulation exyz data file. It uses this data to calculate the production/loss rate of each isotope in the simulated target. Radioactive decay equations are used to calculate the amounts and activity of each radioactive isotope at the set time.
Typically the Activity program runs each input from seconds to no more than several minutes.
