CONFIDENCE LIMITS FOR THE PERCENTILE ANALYSIS OF GUIDANCE SYSTEM ERRORS

Abstract: The Percentile Analysis of guidance system errors is preferred over other techniques such as use of the mean absolute error or the standard deviation because of its immunity t’o variations in the error model, simplicity of analysis, and realism in appraising the performance of guidance systemsi A further advantage of the percentile analysis is the simplicity of establishing confidence limits for this technique. Considering the complete ensemble of operating runs and tests of a particular type of guidance system as a dichotomous population, divided into successes and failures, t’he confidence limits of a series of test’s can be derived readily from the binomial theory.
