Abstract : This study establishes guidelines for determining how accurately aircraft position and velocity should be measured on a Tactical Aircrew Combat Training System (TACTS) range. The method of analysis is based on the sensitivities of Measures of Effectiveness (MOE) computed from TACTS weapon simulations to input aircraft position and velocity at the time of weapon launch. On the basis of desired MOE accuracies, maximum allowable errors (standard deviations) are determined for launch aircraft position and velocity estimates for a variety of weapon/target scenarios.
