Abstract : Ground firing tests were conducted at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, on the BIDOPS miss distance indicator which was fabricated by Babcock Electronic Corporation, to determine its scoring accuracy from 5 to 50 feet. Thirty-three rounds of 105 mm projectiles were fired near the BIDOPS system at random miss distances. Test results revealed a system bias of 11.27 feet plus a mean error of 3.6 feet with a standard deviation of 3.28 feet over a miss distance range of 10 feet to 57.5 feet. (Author)
