radial error

radial error

[′rād·ē·əl ′er·ər]
(ordnance)
An error associated with delivery of munitions on a target; it is the distance between the desired point of impact and actual point of impact, both points projected and measured on an imaginary plane drawn perpendicular to the flight path of the munition.

radial error

As it pertains to armament delivery, it is the distance between the desired point of impact of the munition and the actual point of impact. Both are projected and measured on an imaginary plane perpendicular to the munition flight path.
