Abstract
The ABL Acquisition, Tracking, Pointing and Fire Control systems functions are described. The key to the design process is a detailed situation that models the controls, algorithms, engagement sequence, mode logic, passive track sensors, active track sensor, plume phenomenology, active return from the target, and the effects of atmosphere. The application of the simulation to the design process is described, including passive track, active track, and kill assessment. Two field tests used to validate the simulation are briefly described.
