Abstract:

The report presents data from a field investigation of aiming error as a function of launcher weight and tracking rate for manportable air defense system applications under calm and windy conditions. The effects of calm and 15- knot wind conditions are examined in terms of aiming error at the point of uncage for launcher weights of 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 pounds and tracking rates of below 1, 1 to 4, 4 to 7, and above 7 degrees per second.
