Abstract : The use of univariate and multivariate regression procedures is described with respect to evaluating the MISTRAM position and velocity accuracies and biases. Data are collected by means of airborne and missile tests from MISTRAM, Ballistic Cameras, G. E. MOD III, and AZUSA Mark II. The data to be analyzed consist of differences between MISTRAM and various instrumentation systems. The ultimate goals of the regression analysis are to satisfy the test objectives set up by the Air Force and to obtain a maximum amount of information concerning the accuracies and biases of the MISTRAM system. An illustrative example in both the univariate and multivariate regression setup is given, as well as a workable FORTRAN program for the univariate case. Alt ough this report is devoted primarily to the application of regression techniques for evaluating the MISTRAM accuracies, it should be noted that the prescribed regression procedures are perfectly general and could also be used for evaluating many types of instrumentation systems.
