Abstract:

The major role visibility plays in the production of optical instrumentation data during NWC range tests is described. As background discussions of the NWC mission and location, test ranges and optical instrumentation systems, and workload and cost factors are presented. An example is given of the effects of charging visibility on optical instrumentation records. Finally, conclusions are drawn concerning the minimum visibility for range tests and the effects of data lost because of inadequate visibility on weapons development programs. Author
