Abstract : The report contains the results of all the remaining tests on the comparative tracking characteristics of the T-5 and the T-6. Specifically, the following portions of the test program are covered: A. Automatic tracking accuracy in each of the positional coordinates of azimuth, elevation, and slant range at short and medium ranges, and at high azimuth rates. B. Manual radar tracking accuracy in reference to tests in which operators position the radar tracker by observing radar signals. C. Minimum or critical angle of tracking defined as that minimum angle of elevation for which the tracking errors become twice as great as normal. The results of the test program as carried out on a B-25 target plane with a speed of approximately 100 yd./sec. are summarized in the following section: (Author)
