Abstract:

HITVAL is a joint ArmyAir Force test program to acquire an empirical data base to determine hit probability of selected Soviet antiaircraft guns against US fixed and rotary wing aircraft. The data base will be used to determine the degree of validity of three DOD aircraft attrition models. A preliminary system scoring test was conducted to determine the accuracy of the gun instrumentation mounted on an S-60 gun, the 23-mm twin-barrel gun, and the XM-42A weapon system. The gun instrumentation system measured the azimuth and elevation of the gun breech relative to the gun base, the tilt of the gun base and tracking errors of the gun crew. The target position was measured by cinetheodolites. A comparison of the cinetheodolite and gun instrumentation position information was performed to quantify the errors in gun instrumentation systems and thus determine the accuracy of the hit scoring system.
