The paper describes a method of analyzing radar fuzes for air targets by using experimental data and the digital computer. Experimental data from velocity scaled tests are very useful for fuze evaluation. Our data come from several sources an indoor track at Corona, CA a sled track at China Lake, CA and a truck track, also at China Lake. In all cases, a full-scale target model is hung over the track, and the fuze is carried past it at a low velocity. The target is placed at different positions and attitudes to simulate different encounter trajectories.
