Abstract:

A mathematical model of a simple, statistical fire control scheme is presented. The equations are developed for the determination of relative target motion parameters, a complete bearingsonly solution and complete solutions based upon hypothesized inputs of target speed, course, or range. The statistical properties of some of the results are analyzed and compared to Mark 113 results and idealized manual plots. A method of detecting target zigs is described and statistically evaluated. Methods of improving some of the present Mark 113 fire control system computational schemes are presented.
