Abstract : The paper contained in this report, WSEG 211, is responsive to that portion of the Memorandum for WSEG from the Deputy Director (Test and Evaluation) dealing with test design for demonstration and test of the Bomb Scoring System. The paper recommends an experimental design for test and evaluation of the Bomb Scoring System as well as requirements for test instrumentation, ranges, aircraft and ordnance. The experimental design will consist of around 250 to 450 runs or passes over the target area, requiring approximately 60 aircraft sorties. Included will be both simulated and actual bomb drops. Primary test instrumentation includes cinetheodolites, a laser tracker and limited use of ballistic cameras.
