OPTIMUM BURST HEIGHT SETTINGS FOR DUAL PARALLEL FUZE SYSTEMS WHEN INDIVIDUAL FUZE BURST HEIGHTS ARE GAUSSIAN
HARRY DIAMOND LABS WASHINGTON D C
A table of optimum burst height settings applicable to fuze systems composed o two independently operating fuzes -- each of which has a Gaussian burst height distribution about a specified HOB -- is provided. The standard deviations of the burst height distribution of both fuzes are assumed identical. Entries of optimum settings, in terms of standard deviation units below desired system burst altitudeARE TABULATED FOR VARIOUS INTERVALS DEFINING PROPER FUZE FUNCTION, COMBINED WITH DUD RATES FROM 0 TO 10 PERCENT. A brief discussion of the mathematical background for the table is included. Author
