A study was made to investigate the most effective mode of aimed fire to engage linear and point targets with the rifle portion of the Special Purpose Individual Weapon SPIW system. Basic test data were generated by a group of riflemen firing a total of approximately 23,000 rounds at different types of simulated targets. A supplementary phase discussed in this report is the applicability to the SPIW of doctrine evolved for full automatic fire from other rifle systems.
