Abstract : Control of stochastic error in a discrete system is analyzed for an error model comprised of zero mean uncorrelated and Markovian processes plus a random bias of known functional form. It is shown that the optimal solution in the sense of minimum mean square error is realized with a Kalman filter, a linear predictor, and a storage-feedback device. The system used to illustrate this application is a gun system, and performance comparisons are given for it. (Author)
