This paper examines the data obtained from gunner qualification tests using a trainer and the live firings of the SAGUMS missile during Expanded Service Test EST and draws conclusions based on that data. It is concluded that the SAGUM Trainer SAT qualification scores can be utilized to predict the gunners performance with the live round. It is further concluded that multiple firings of live rounds are not necessary in the training program. Results are presented which indicate the value of selectivity picking gunners based on SAT qualification scores. Finally, the influence of gunner selectivity and target postures on SAGMUS performance are indicated.
