Abstract : The determination of the maximum allowable weapons system error for a single effects pattern on a circular target was rigorously developed from a model using mathematical and statistical methods. Nomograms for the solution were developed and some examples cited illustrating the theoretical limitations. The functional relationships were derived from geometrical considerations specifying the maximum separation of target and effects pattern centers giving a specified area coverage, and a probability model reducing this distance due to the probability distribution of the effects pattern center.
