Testing

Chronology of hit-to-kill missile tests 16 Apr 1997 George Lewis In looking at the Kaminski chart of hit-to-kill teststhere appear to be two errors:

  1. The order of the ERIS tests is reversed. The first ERIS test was a hit, while the second was the miss.
  2. Kaminski's chart shows four ERINT tests, the first two misses, and the last two hits. As far as I can determine there were only three ERINT tests against missile targets, of which the first was a miss, and the second and third were hits. Certainly this is what all the reporting at the time said.

  • Navy LEAP 42 of 43 Objectives Achieved Overall, the Navy LEAP test program was a clear success: 42 of the 43 objectives were achieved. Except it still hasn't actually hit anything.
