Abstract:

This program analyzes the errors of radiolocation predictions and evaluates the average range errors, the root mean square range error, and ten, twenty, and thirty minute cumulative averages of the range errors for both the following a Range errors of the predicted range with respect to the true range of the transmitter where range is measured from the receiver. b Range errors of the predicted transmitter position where range is measured from the known transmitter location. In addition to this, the computer punches up paper tapes for operating an X-Y plotter. Two types of graphs are obtained in this manner. One is a plot of predicted range error vs. time where range is measured from the receiver. The other is a plot of the range and bearing of the predicted transmitter position with respect to the known transmitter location. The latter graph is referred to as a target plot. This program is coded in SPAR. The computer involved in this case is a Control Data Corporation G-20A using the SPACE programming system.
