Abstract:

In this report candidate qualitative variables of air-to-air gunnery were investigated. They are suggested for consideration based on the needs of those responsible for development and testing of gunnery systems. The variables are defined as any measurable parameter descriptive of the system function. They are used for evaluation of gunnery systems at all levels of development and would have generally accepted verification of their capabilities. The variables suggested as candidates are the probability hit density function the Cooper-Harper pilot rating scale the compensatory tracking parameters of the control response criteria the envelope parameters of time of flight of the bullet and the turning rate of aircraft and the time efficiency of the kill. The conclusions of this paper will hopefully provide insight for further detailed analysis. The paper represents the results available in December 1973.
