Orbit response matrix (ORM) measurements are used in many circular accelerators to measure and correct gradient and optics errors, beam position monitor (BPM) gain errors, and dipole corrector gain errors [1]. Here we report results of numerical studies of the RHIC FY06 polarized proton injection and storage lattices to evaluate the feasibility of RHIC ORM analysis, and quantify the effect of random errors (including BPM noise) on ORM analysis of the RHIC lattice.
