Abstract:

The purpose of the research was to examine the sensitivity of weapon impact position to errors in pertinent delivery parameters to examine the combined effect of these delivery errors on overall system accuracy for eight different mil-systems and to compare the relative accuracy of different delivery conditions level versus dive, subsonic versus supersonic, high-drag weapon versus low-drag weapon for each of the eight different mil-systems. This report not only extends the sensitivity analysis purpose 1 presented in Air Force Armament Laboratory Armament Memorandum Report 69-20 to high-drag weapons and to a much larger range of release conditions, but also includes system accuracy data and relative accuracy data for different delivery conditions.
