Mar 01, 2010· Azimuth is somewhat more specific. 4. Bearing is general because it is defined as an angle of separation between two points, while azimuth is always in respect to a horizontal plane. 5. Bearing can be expressed in mils or degrees, while azimuth is often, if not always, in degrees. 6.[...]

Right, add the mils to the known azimuth Left, subtract the mils to the known azimuth Example Summary of Direction: While at TBS the three types of ways to figure out direction to a target will be through the use of a compass (reading mils), map (reading a grid), and a reference point (using binos). Key Concepts of Distance Distance.[...]

Degrees. A degree is a measure of angle equal to 1/360th of a revolution, or circle. The number 360 has 24 divisors, making it a fairly easy number to work with. There are also 360 days in the Persian calendar year, and many theorize that early astronomers used 1 degree per day.. The degree is an SI accepted unit for angle for use with the metric system.[...]

The military defines an azimuth as a horizontal angle measured clockwise from a north base line. Azimuth is the most common military method to express direction. When using an azimuth, the point from which the azimuth originates is the center of an imaginary circle (Figure 1). This circle is divided into 360 degrees or 6,400 mils.[...]

b. An azimuth in mils can be any number up to 6400, since a circle has 6400 mils. Due East is 1600 mils, due South is 3200 mils, due West is 4800 mils, and due North is 6400 mils or 0 mils. 127. 2.

By the way, for azimuth 0° people often say 'due' north ('due' means 'exactly'), and for 90° they say due east, for 180° due south and for 270° due west!" "Now you try it Lou! To see if you've mastered the conversions between azimuths and compass quadrant bearings, take this little QUIZ![...]

Azimuth Scale Adjuster Assembly. The azimuth scale adjuster assembly rotates the azimuth scale to introduce the declination constant. Two teeth at the adjuster engage teeth on the underside of the azimuth scale. Thus, turning the adjuster with a screwdriver rotates the azimuth scale approximately 1,800 mils.[...]

M2 COMPASS The M2 compass is a rustproof and dustproof magnetic instrument that provides slope, angle of site, and azimuth readings. One of the most important features of the M2 compass is that it is graduated in mils and does not require a conversion from degrees to mils as does the M1 compass.[...]

Standards: Determined the grid azimuth (in mils or degrees) from your location (point A) to point B to within 1 degree or 20 mils. Performance Steps 1. The direction from one point to another, either on the map or on the ground, is called an azimuth. Azimuths are given in degrees or mils in a clockwise direction from north, and all azimuths taken from a map are grid azimuths.[...]

1. Azimuth  A horizontal angle in respect to North (360 degrees, 6400 mils). The number directly under the black Index Line reads an azimuth on the Dial in either degrees or mils. Example: azimuth of 90 degrees or 1600 mils (read 16) is due East. 2. North  Generally, a topographical map shows three Norths in the declination diagram.[...]

Using mils, the actual size of an object observed in the field can be estimated. An object that appears to be n mils wide when it is 1000 units away from you, is actually n units wide  the units used does not matter, feet, yards, meters, miles A vehicle that appears to be 15 mils long and is 1000 feet distant is actually 15 feet long.[...]

Also, make sure the 0 or 360degree mark of your protractor is toward the top (or north) of your map, and make sure the 90degree mark is toward the right (or east) of your map.If you place your protractor down incorrectly on your map, the[...]

Why do you need it. The most common need for a back azimuth, in my experience, is reversing a path. If you have shot an azimuth on a landmark and approached that landmark only to find out that your path will not work, you may need to reverse that path all the way back to your last known point.[...]

A milliradian, often called a mil or mrad, is an SI derived unit for angular measurement which is defined as a thouh of a radian (0.001 radian). Mils are used in adjustment of firearm sights by adjusting the angle of the sight compared to the barrel (up, down, left or right). Mils are also used for comparing shot groupings, or to compare the difficulty of hitting different sized shooting ...[...]
