Abstract
The report describes the use of the BADGER target system and the Missile Intercept Scoring System (MISS) in the Five Brigade TOW Missile Concentration in CFB Gagetown in December 1988. The BADGER target system is a fully mobile three-dimensional half-scale Soviet tank target which, when used with an optical miss-distance system like the MISS, can accurately score hits against an equivalent full-scale target. The BADGER prime mover subset was also used to pull two-dimensional target trailers for the Concentration. The target trailers were designed and built by personnel from Maintenance Company, CFB Gagetown. They featured replaceable target boards supported on a two-wheel steel trailer. The target trailers were pulled singly or two at one, during the day and at night, and as either optical or thermal targets. The report includes a discussion of the results, recommendations, and an appreciation of costs.
