Abstract:

The report is a manual and presents, in simplified form, methods and examples of computing the hit capability of Naval Gun Systems through the use of tables, graphs and equations. The methods permit consideration of any correlations that may exist between successive rounds in a salvo, but does not treat the problem of establishing the degree of correlation. Although the equations derived are general in nature, the tabular data appended provide estimates of achieving at least one hit per salvo in the special situation where the range and cross-range components of the error statistics are equal and the targets are nearly square or circular.
