Abstract : The Missile Impact Predictor System is installed on the missile to provide the down-range ground equipment with a means of predicting the impact point of the missile from the instantaneous position of the missile in its flight path. The Impact Predictor Monitor Set tests the Missile Impact Predictor System on the ground by simulating the signals that would be transmitted by the ground station during missile flight and monitoring the responses of each of the three missile components. The Monitor Set applies the proper r-f signals at various power levels and frequencies and monitors the power and frequency responses of the missile components. (Author)
