Abstract : Errors contributed by sight line stabilization are often negligible in weapon systems incorporating stabilized sights. In constructing performance models of these systems, it is desirable to minimize modeling detail. This is accomplished here by modeling an idealized stabilized sight whose sight line responds only to gunner commands. This model is equally applicable for air-to-ground or ground-to-air systems. GUNNER, a digital computer simulation of the idealized sight model applied to a surface weapon system, is discussed in detail. A complete listing of the GUNNER subroutine, written in FORTRAN IV, usable on an IBM computer 360/65, is included. (Author)
