Abstract : Under assignment from the Royal Netherlands Army Materiel Directorate/Info. Systems Division (DMKL/Afdeling Info. Systemen), the TNO Prins Maurits Laboratory (TNO-PML) conducted a study to investigate the different system boundaries of the TOW weapon system. Both the gunner-related and not-gunner-related system boundaries were considered. An important goal of this study was to investigate the possibility of improving the SST evaluation session so that the SST instructors can conduct quick and correct assessment of the gunner's firing performance. The demanded SST modifications and the relevant output data are described in this report.
