SG Range Safety

Verbatim Definitions and terms.

TermDefinition
Angle P The angle beginning at the firing point, located to the left and right of the dispersion area, which defines the area which contains projectiles after making initial contact with the target medium.
Area A Th scndary danger area (bffer zne) tht laterally parallels th impct area or ricochet area (dpnding on th wpn system) & cntains frgments, debris, & components frm frangible or explosive prjectiles & warheads functioning on th rt or lft edge of th impct are
Area B The secondary danger area (buffer zone) on the downrange side of the impact area and Area A which contains fragments, debris, and components from frangible or exploding projectiles and warheads functioning on the edge of the impact area and Area A.
Distance W The maximum lateral distance a projectile will ricochet after impacting within the dispersion area. Distance W defines the maximum lateral edge of the ricochet area.
Distance X The maximum distance a projectile (to include guided missiles and rockets) will travel when fired or launched at a given quadrant elevation with a given charge or propulsion system.
Distance Y The maximum distance downrange at which a lateral ricochet is expected to occur when a projectile is fired at a given quadrant elevation.
Gun Target Line An imaginary line drawn between the firing position and target position. Also referred to as the line of fire.
Ricochet Area The area located to the lft and rt of the dispersion area that contains projectiles after making initial contact with the target medium.
Angle Q The angle beginning at distance Y, located to the top left and right of the dispersion area, which defines the area which contains projectiles after initial contact with the impact medium.
Dispersion Ara The area within the SDZ located between the GTL and the ricochet area. This area accounts for human error, gun or cannon tube wear, propellant temperature, and so forth.
