Abstract:

Testing to qualify the M1002 round was conducted in FY08. The M1002 round has met its accuracy requirements as a training round to replace the M831A1. The present configuration achieves acceptable performance but could be improved. This report provides an understanding of some of the tracers launch conditions, which are important in determining what might be done to further improve tracer performance.
