Abstract : The annual summary statements of the accuracy of Atlantic Missile Range Tracking Instrumentation are presented in this report. The statements are based on studies conducted by RCA systems analysis. The report also provides a detailed discussion of the definition of errors encountered in tracking system evaluations, methods and techniques used to estimate errors, specific AMR methodologies including data analysis flow diagrams and a discussion f the variance - covariance error propagation required to determine the accuracy of reduced position, velocity and acceleration data. Work on the determination of instrumentation accuracy is a continuing project and revisions and refinements to the estimates of accuracy are issued periodically as additional information is made available.
