Abstract

David and Alalouf have specified the optimal aiming-points for Pattern Firing on a linear target by n identical munitions that are subject to systematic error only. Under the same distributional assumption on the error, namely, that its pdf is unimodal and symmetric around zero, we generalize these results to the case where the munitions (weapons) vary in lethality. Combat situations to which this generalization applies are also discussed.
