Analysis of Gunnery Data
MetadataShow full item record
Data from the gunnery Table VIII exercises in the M1A2 test at Fort Hunter Liggett were used to obtain maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters in a bivariate normal distribution of impacts of tank main gun rounds. The data are censored; impact position information is known only for rounds that hit the target panels. It is argued that much useful information was gained by observing impact position data, rather than recording only hit-miss data.
