Abstract:

In order to better control the results of the experiments conducted downrange, it is necessary to find, for a particular firing, the optimum location of the ship and aircraft. A method for determination of these optimum observing positions, together with a knowledge of the range squared to the target when it is at an altitude of interest is presented. From the information given one may also determine the target steradiance required in order that an instrument of known sensitivity could detect it.
