Abstract : Two sequential procedures for testing hypotheses about the circular error probable (CEP) of a weapon system under fixed conditions are discussed. One of the tests is the sequential probability ratio test based on a Rayleigh model for radial miss distances. The second procedure is nonparametric, and is essentially a 'control chart' approach based upon the proportions of weapon impacts observed inside the specified CEP. Average sample sizes required for the procedures are compared as well as operating characteristics. (Author)
