Abstract : This report covers the systems analysis, design, integration and testing of the Video Scoring System developed by U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground in support of Improved Cobra Armament System (ICAS) testing. Previous testing of aircraft armament fire control systems has been questioned because no adequate means of determining the effect of gunner tracking accuracy on overall weapon system accuracy was available. This report discusses the problem, explores some alternative approaches, and describes a successful solution to the problem which has been implemented at U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground. Follow-on implications are also discussed.
