Abstract:

This study determined the technical feasibility and optimum design analysis for an Armed Aircraft Qualification Range Scoring System in accordance with Concept Formulation outlined in AMCR 70-30 and system requirements outlined in a Small Development Requirement SDR. After an intensive review and analysis of the SDR Requirements had been completed, a detailed investigation was conducted of all available OFF-THE-SHELF scoring systems. A Trade-Off analysis was made of the characteristics of each of these systems versus the requirements outlined for the optimum scoring system developed by the revised SDR. A cost effectiveness effort was completed, an Operational Specification was written, and a Concept Formulation Report was prepared. The report concluded that an off-the-shelf scoring system using acoustic sensing principles be further developed to meet the functional requirements of the optimum system in order to satisfy armed aircraft gunnery scoring requirements of the 1970 to 1975 time frame.
