Abstract : Post-test analysis of the HIMAG moving target simulator (MTS) data shows that significant improvements in hit probability can be achieved through the use of modern control theory. The paper traces the evolution of the HIMAG estimator-sight controller from its early classical to its later quasi-optimal mechanization. The full solution, adaptive estimator, predictor, and nominal controller that subsequently emerged is presented and evaluated using MTS data. (Author)
