Abstract : Techniques are discussed for Monte-Carlo evaluation of several filters in a digital fire control system performing against an aircraft trajectory developed to simulate a diving attack. The programs developed are designed to allow for future modeling work in a three-dimensional theater of operations with expedient selection of the options that are discussed, and comprehensive user's guide is provided. Comparison is made between a model of the filter currently used in the MK-86 Digital Fire Control System and some promising combinations of the several options available. (Author)
