A model of the pilot-aircraft system is used to relate pilot tracking performance to overall weapon delivery accuracy. This permits the evaluation of the control and guidance aspects of manual weapon delivery in terms of the closed-loop parameter of impact error. All essential task problems are evaluated as integral elements of weapon delivery rather than as isolated subsystems. Specifically, a linear expression for impact error is developed in terms of the task variables directly under the pilots control. By considering each of the pilot inputs to be a random variable, a statistical model of the propagation of the pilot-induced errors into impact errors is developed. Author
