Abstract : The Helicopter Armament Subsystem XM3 for the UH-1B helicopter is an area weapon system that is capable of firing modified 2.75 in. rockets from two pods, one mounted on each side of the heli copter. This report documents the analysis which accompanied the design of the XM3 fire control system. The analysis is concerned with realistic estimates of input and component errors which produce output errors. The output errors depend on the theoretical fire control system mechanization and the tactical employment involved. Preliminary ballistic data was used as a basis for rocket flight. (Author)
