Radar Bomb Scoring with Computer Controlled Bombing Systems
Keene, Kurt Lee
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis discusses the major problems associated with the development of any reasonably accurate radar bomb scoring system and the resulting rationale for selecting a computer controlled tactical bombing system to perform the bomb scoring function. A scoring system is proposed which utilizes observed deviations from desired release conditions as the basis for predicting bomb impact. Circular Error Probable is then estimated using a noncentral chi-square distribution model. A sample table of CEP as a function of estimated point of impact is included.
Upon consultation with NPS faculty, the School has determined that the limitations originally placed on this thesis may be removed and that it is approved for public release, distribution unlimited, effective July 25, 2013.
