Abstract : Predictive Functional Control (P.F.C.), a Mode Based Predictive Control (MBPC) technique is a control strategy based on the use of a model to predict the process output over a long range time period. This technique, fully compatible with the CAD-based integrated design , is presented here. 'Me link between the specification and the control law timing parameters is made and the benefits of the use of a CAD tool is demonstrated. Two industrial applications are detailed. The first one concerns the guidance law of an air defence short range missile. The second one consists in the control of the two axis turret of a very short range air defence weapon system.
