Abstract:

The Department of the Army has requested the U.S. Army Combat Developments Command develop a methodology for determining operational hit probabilities for three pilot man-weapons systems, one of which is the M-60 tank, where the operating personnel are subjected to the psychological and physiological stresses of the simulated combat environment. This thesis describes a proposed experimental methodology applicable to the time frame FY 1969 and beyond for obtaining hit probabilities to include the preliminary experimental unit firing exercises and method of selection, the courses to be fired, the instrumentation requirements, several statistical techniques to be used in data reduction, a format for presenting the resulting data and the cost involved in the experiment.
