Abstract:

The Advanced Gun Fire Control System AGFCS program is a multi-phase program to investigate technical approaches exhibiting potentially significant improvement in present gun fire control systems effectiveness. Phase I, the AGFCS Definition Study, considered the overall design, effectiveness, complexity and mission requirements of a post-1976 air superiority aircraft. The purpose of Phase II, the AGFCS Design Study, was to design an Augmented Tracking System ATS for possible fabrication and flight test evaluation in a later AGFCS Program Phase. The ATS includes the range and angle tracking sensors, the computer, and the software used to process the tracking signals. It provides the target-dependent variables required to solve the lead angle equation in a director AGFCS mechanization. The ATS will ultimately serve as the core of an advanced gun fire control system.
