Abstract:

The US Army Aviation Test Board conducted the military potential test of the SR-3 and ANASN-50 Flight Reference Systems at Fort Rucker, Alabama. The SR-3 and ANASN-50 were flight tested in an OV-1B for 258.5 hours and 120.0 hours during the period 26 November 1965 to 18 April 1966 and 1 February 1966 to 30 April 1966, respectively. The systems were compared with the requirements of the proposed Military Characteristics MCs. Both systems met ten of the twenty-six essential requirments, failed to meet six, and only partially met one of the requirements. It will be determined during engineering tests whether the systems meet the remaining nine essential requirements. It was concluded that both systems have military potential and the correction of the shortcomings would enhance the potential of each. It was recommended that both systems by subjected to engineeringservice tests and that the shortcomings be corrected if technically and economically feasible. Author
