Abstract : The model 9600 Phase Error Programmer is a cam driven programmer capable of varying the angle by which the FM leads the AM in the guidance beam. This equipment is to be used with the SPQ-5 radar and the Mark 23 computer for correcting phasing error during missile tests which employ crossing targets. The unit is permanently connected to the ship's system and is automatically started by the first motion switch. Phasing error introduced to the ship's system is zero whenever the unit is not in use. Individual cams are required for each target trajectory. The programmer is limited to a maximum phasing error correction of plus or minus 50 deg and in flight time to 75 seconds.
