Abstract : The thesis is addressed to the problem of determining if the precision registration procedure currently being used by the Field Artillery is as accurate and economical as a procedure that has recently been proposed by the Gunnery Department at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. A comparison of the two procedures was performed 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)
