Abstract:

The purpose of the investigation was to standardize target exposure times to be used in daylight testing of rifles fired in the semi-automatic mode on the Infantry Boards instrumented defense firing facility. Further, the study was to define minimum exposure times that should reduce total test execution time--reduction in manhours, operating times of sophisticated and unsophisticated equipment--without sacrificing viable observations. The investigation used actual test data, determined the mathematical distribution of time to first hit in each of seven range bands, and used statistical inference techniques in determining exposure times.
