Abstract:

This report develops methodology for acceptance criteria for target dispersion characteristics of Armor Piercing Discarding Sabot APDS rounds. The distribution of observed circular probable errors of the reference lot of Cartridge, 105mm APDS-T M392 is obtained and is used to derive the operating characteristics OC curves of several acceptance plans. Procedures for developing acceptance plans and their associated O-C curves are given, and several plans are presented.
