Abstract : The thesis is addressed to the problem of selecting a precision registration procedure for the Field Artillery. The author hypothesized that, in view of recently procured automatic data processing equipment, the current procedure is neither the most accurate nor the most economical procedure possible. An alternate procedure was designed and compared with the current procedure through the use of a computer simulation model. Data from the simulation was analyzed and conclusions were drawn regarding the relative accuracy and economy of the two procedures. (Author)
