Abstract:

After a cursory critique of currently used methodology for the study of target accuracy requirements for artillery weapons, this research report is concerned with the development of analytical methods and two different though interrelatable and essentially additive optimization concepts. If implemented within the context of TACFIRE, these are conservatively estimated to provide on the average a 30 greater weapons effectiveness. Although the intra and extra weapons systems employment parameters are interdependent, variable, and changing, an integrated operational optimization is achieved. The methods outlined are also useful in weapons R and D and related systems analyses. Furthermore, the rather cogent requirements and related recommendations or conclusions arrived at may be of considerable significance for certain R and D and combat development activities. Author
