Abstract:

The Multiple Airborne Target Trajectory System MATTS ANGSQ-29 was constructed and installed at Tyndall AFB to track an interceptor, target, and rocket simultaneously and plot the trajectory of any 2 of the 3 airborne vehicles. Tests were made to evaluate the capability of the modified MATTS to achieve, at minimum, premodification accuracies. Tracking accuracy was satisfactory or acceptable throughout the tested profile except at the extreme western end of the SAGE drone track. Spatial position accuracies are comparable to those obtained from the original MATTS. Scoring accuracy meets the required accuracies for miss and escape distance calculations.
