Abstract : The report considers the development of realistic models for weapon system controllers which could be used to predict the effectiveness of manned weapon systems under stress conditions. Two types of models are considered: (1) input-output stochastic linear state-variable models, and (2) an optimal control model. The maximum likelihood identification technique was used in estimating model parameters from input output data. (Modified author abstract)
