Abstract : This effort was to include a one-month test program, an analysis of the result, a final report disclosing the results of the test and study, and also a set of recommendations to modify the ARBAT System for use as a test instrument for testing of tank/antitank munitions. The report herein consists of the Flat Trajectory Study Final Report. The goal of the Flat Trajectory Study was to evaluate the capabilities of the current ARBAT Radar System being used for testing tank/antitank munitions and to make recommendations as to the hardware, software, and operational procedures which would facilitate use of the ARBAT System as a standard instrumentation radar for tank/antitank munitions testing. This goal has been satisfactorily met. The Flat Trajectory testing and study resulted in determining that the ARBAT Radar System, in its then current configuration could be used with the current procedures for tank/antitank munitions testing. However, a procedure change was recommended which facilitated the use of the ARBAT System for tank/antitank munitions testing instrumentation. An additional set of hardware and software changes are suggested that would increase the current capability of the ARBAT System for Low Trajectory testing. The ARBAT (Application of Radar to Ballistic Acceptance Testing of ammunition) program has been directed toward achieving substantial improvements in artillery ammunition testing.
