Abstract : Mean vulnerable area and distribution about the mean is estimated for a small target which has been described using combinatorial geometry. Estimates are made for eight target grid cell sizes and the case with no grid superimposed on the target. Mean vulnerable area versus cell size and spread about the mean are considered. Based on 568 data points per cell size, it is concluded that differences in mean vulnerable area obtained in using a variety of cell sizes or no grid at all are small; but that spreads about the mean, due to the same, vary significantly.
