Abstract:

Performance of the pop-up weapon-delivery maneuver by F-4 pilots and Weapons Systems Officers was analyzed by collecting detailed ratings and reported errors on segments of the maneuver. The major result of this analysis was that rated performance on the final few seconds of the maneuver, during which the crew is trying to execute a constant angle, high-speed dive, is clearly the best predictor of weapons delivery accuracy. Training implications and issues related to the use of self-assessment data are briefly discussed. Author
