Abstract:

Since the process of deriving ballistic coefficient information from radar data is complicated, many people assume that the relationship between radar errors and beta errors is necessarily also complicated. The purpose of this report is to demonstrate simple relationships between errors in beta and errors in the radar angle rate measurement. The measurement of angle rate is usually the largest source of error in determination of beta by a coherent radar.
