A method for the computation of confidence intervals for circular error probability (CEP) based on first order variance estimates was introduced in 1966. It was later found that under certain conditions the resulting confidence intervals for CEP were smaller than expected. As a result a second order variance estimate method was developed, at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, which greatly improved the accuracy of the confidence intervals for CEP. The purpose of this thesis is to develop and test procedures for the 3-dimensional case to obtain a second order estimate for variance of spherical error probability (SEP).
