The object was to develop methods of processing the data and to extract information characterizing the performance of the beacon system. Parameters used to evaluate performance include scan reliability. probability of a missed report, classification of misses according to cause, code errors, spurious target reports, and range azimuth accuracy estimation. For data available on magnetic tape, computer programs were developed to tabulate beacon malfunctions. Techniques were developed to estimate the probable cause of a malfunction. Author
