Abstract : The AN/MSQ-35 Radar Bomb Scoring Central was developed for SAC in order to free the aircraft crew from the artificial conditions of a live bombing range and provide a more realistic evaluation of aircraft bombing and navigational procedures. Since an actual bomb release is not required, real tactical and strategic targets may be used to solve problems such as navigation, target identification, and unfamiliar terrain. This provides the bomber crews with the realistic training necessary to maintain a high degree of combat readiness. This report includes a description and analysis of the AN/MSQ-35, its characteristics and capabilities, and recommendations for future improvements in system performance, accuracy, maintainability and reliability. An analysis of the White Sands Missile Range field tests is included. Detailed circuit theory is not covered except where necessary to support the system analysis. (Author)
