This paper discusses the game theory solution to the following aiming problem An attacker receives information about the location of a target and launches a weapon. It is assumed that, at the moment it is supposed to be hit, the target may be anywhere within an annulus with radii R1, R2, which depend on the weapon delivery time and the target evasion manoeuvres. Using a polar coordinate system R, theta, the assumption is made that the target is uniformly distributed in theta, but chooses R between the limits R1 and R2 in order to maximize its chance of escape.
