Abstract:

The report documents a newly developed all-digital, six degree of freedom point target laser guidance Monte - Carlo miss distance simulation program. It is modularly constructed to facilitate adaptation of the program to reflect changing hardware components, different levels of environment modeling detail, etc. The Monte - Carlo approach to statistical miss distance analysis was chosen because a realistic model can be employed in particular, a linear model is not required because error coupling is inherently included, and because confidence intervals can be readily calculated. Eight random error sources relating to laser point target guidance are modeled in the program. Modified author abstract
