Abstract:

This report summarizes the results of a No-Drop Weapon Scoring NDWS study performed by Litton Guidance and Control Systems. The report contains a description of the impact prediction process and its accuracy in terms of sensitivities to measurement errors. Setting these impact prediction errors equal to the expected ballistic dispersion yields a set of acceptable measurement error tolerances. The study discusses mechanization of an NDWS to obtain these measurement accuracies. A summary description of an Airborne Range Instrumentation System ARIS, along with flight test results, is included as an example of satisfactory mechanization. Author
