Abstract : The effect of sensor errors in the line-of-sight rate is determined by relating these errors through a data smoothing and prediction scheme to errors in the transverse velocity and acceleration. The objective is to derive the target miss distance as a function of important design and tactical variables (i. e., data rate, smoothing time, firing delay, velocity and acceleration).
