This report covers the accuracy test of a system designed to measure, display, and record air-to-air range and bearing measurements between in-flight aircraft. Data acquired from flight tests using reference measurements described in the report showed the estimated standard deviation range of error to be 100 feet, reducible to 60 feet via software smoothing of data. The standard deviation of bearing error was 2.4 . It is concluded that the system is well within specifications. Author
