Abstract
Describes several potential applications of Kalman 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 trjectory 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 real data is processed through the muzzle angle prediction filter. An architecture for a complete advanced land fire control system is proposed.
