Abstract:

This report describes the results of the simulation studies of the Automatic Aircraft Intercept Control System AAICS. the results indicate that a target can be tracked by Track-While-Scan equipment T-W-S if sufficient smoothing is provided. Stable operation of AACIS was shown to be possible. The importance of accuracies in the determination of bomber and fighter speeds was investigated. The interception accuracies obtained in the simulation were good. The AAICS loop operated satisfactory at all data rates employed in the simulation. Greater smoothing was required for a maneuvering target than for a target on a straight-line course. A simple evasive maneuver started early in the bombers course did not materially alter interception accuracies.
