Abstract
This report was originally intended to focus on an aircraft crash incident which involved two operational research analysts from the Operational Research Analysis Establishment, National Defence Headquarters, Ottawa, Ontario. These analysts were flying in a Royal Canadian Airforce aircraft (a Canso amphibian) along the coast of British Columbia to brief the personnel at radar stations and a fighter aircraft base on a forthcoming air defence exercise, called “Crackerjack”. The personnel at these sites were being instructed on the general outline of the exercise, and they were asked to collect and record various types of information during the Crackerjack exercise. This information involved radar target detection, target tracking, intercepting the targets and the amount of cross – telling to adjacent radar and fighter aircraft.
