Abstract : This report describes several potential applications of filters for advanced land fire control systems. Two areas that are especially important in the moving-target / moving-platform scenario are addressed in some detail: the tracking and trajectory prediction of multiple maneuvering targets and the prediction of gun pointing angles in the instant before firing. This is particularly important in the design of a dynamic muzzle reference system. The equations for the filters are developed, simulations are described and some me data is processed through the muzzle angle prediction Filter. An architecture for a complete advanced land fire control system is proposed.
