Abstract:

A study was made to determine the feasibility of mounting a photographic device on a rifle so as to obtain a picture of the boresight point just prior to projectile exit. The photograph would be used to estimate projectile miss distance at ranges up to 500 meters under simulated tactical conditions. During the program the desired system performance specifications were established and alternative design approaches were evaluated. It was concluded that it is apparently feasible to build a device, using present technology, which will meet the performance specifications. It is expected that the most difficult specification to meet will be the .75 pound weight limit, which corresponds to the weight of a bayonet for an M-14 rifle.
