Abstract:

The major features of a proposed approach to radar bomb scoring are discussed. The method uses observed deviations from desired release conditions as a basis for predicting bomb mean point of impact in the target plane. Circular Error Probable CEP is estimated using a non-central chi-square approximation of the bomb impact distribution. Contributions of bomb scoring system errors such as errors in radar location to the apparent delivery system CEP are discussed.
