Abstract:

A general expression is derived for the optimum maneuver for a target given a bound in the Nth derivative of its path and given an optimum linear predictor for the weapon firing at the target. The analysis assumes a stationary process and uses the r.m.s. criterion for optimization. The analysis is applied to two practical problems -- the antiaircraft gunfire problem and the problem of interdicting convoys with indirect-fire weapons.
