C  PURPOSE: EVALUATES ION IMPACT IONISATION RATE COEFFICIENTS FOLLOWING
C           THE EXPRESSIONS OF PERCIVAL AND RICHARDS.
C
C  (ALTERNATIVE TO RQIONPR WITH BETTER MAXWELL AVERAGING BUT SLOWER)
C
C  A CONSTANT SPEED SHIFT MAY BE GIVEN TO THE COLLISION OVER AND ABOVE
C  THE THERMAL SPEEDS
C
C
C  INPUT
C      Z      = TARGET ION CHARGE+1
C      N      = PRINCIPAL QUANTUM  NUMBER OF INITIAL  TARGET LEVEL
C      ZIMP     = PROJECTILE CHARGE
C      AMSIMP = PROJECTILE MASS (PROTON UNITS)
C      TP     = ION TEMPERATURE (K)    (EITHER TARGET OR PROJECTILE)
C      VDISP  = CONSTANT MEAN SPEED SHIFT FOR THE COLLISION
C                     (DESCRIBES BEAM PLASMA SITUATIONS)
C
C  OUTPUT
C      RQINEW  = RATE COEFFICIENT  (CM**3 SEC-1)
