Abstract : A mathematical model of a gunner was developed to represent the response of a well-trained and motivated operator of a dual axis compensatory tracking task of a high performance air defense gun system. The model is based on the quasi-linear transfer function approach. The parameters used in the model were derived from the tracking experiments of 16 gunners who operated a real time man-in-loop simulation against a variety of targets. This human math model was then integrated into a 3-D Fortran optic track and fire simulation. It was validated by comparing the critical parameters of the simulation results with field test results. The comparison were made by both Monte Carlo methods as well as by single runs. This simulation is the mathematical counterpart of the hardware, the software and the operator of an advanced air defense gun system.
