Abstract : The Air-to-Air Fire Control Exposition (EXPO) Program, which has as its goal investigate fire control system concepts for use in advanced fighter aircraft, was continued as a Phase 3 effort. The objectives of this follow-on phase were to model and program combined fire control system approaches (which included that of an associated participant) to the air-to-air gunnery problem, model and implement degraded sensor inputs to the fire control system models, provide capability for investigation of high velocity ammunition, and to define a test plan for a flight simulator optimization and evaluation of the fire control systems in a subsequent program phase.
