MetadataShow full item record
The acquisition of ground targets in combat from tactical helicopters, employing low-level flying techniques, is a complex process. The author examines the air-to-ground target acquisition process and investigates the parameters affecting this process. The tactical environment of helicopters is outlined and those parameters deemed significant and/or peculiar to this environment are identified. Current mathematical models of air-to-ground target acquisition are reviewed. Those which are considered relevant to this particular problem are described. The author concludes that there are no validated models for predicting target acquisition from tactical helicopters.
