Description

Report presenting flight and analog-simulator tests with a prototype automatic interceptor in order to study the effects of elevating the radar-boresight axis on the stability and tracking performance of the system. The interceptor was designed to perform the lead-pursuit type of attacks and test runs were made in flight and on the analog simulator with and without lead-angle computation. Results regarding the effects of interceptor rolling motion upon tracking errors, similarity of flight results and analog-computer results, effect of elevating the radar-boresight axis upon stability, and application of the principle of elevated radar-boresight axis are provided.
