Abstract : Report documents papers presented at second meeting of the coordinating group on modern control theory with emphasis on military systems and recommendations of participants. The second meeting of the Coordinating Group on Modern Control Theory brought into sharp focus both the wide range of applications of modern control theory to DOD weapon systems and a clear need for the services to investigate the full potential of optimal control and estimation theory in defending against highly maneuvering targets. Overall, there was general agreement that these meetings are constructive and have brought together into a single forum all of the participants actively engaged in modern control theory. The Chairman had raised the issue of inviting outside contractors into these proceedings. Views and opinions expressed by attendees appeared to indicate that this matter was more complex than appeared on the surface. The Chairman subsequently set this issue aside for further study.
