MCP 706-327, AMC PAMPHLET: ENGINEERING DESIGN HANDBOOK - FIRE CONTROL SERIES - SECTION 1, FIRE CONTROL SYSTEMS - GENERAL (JAN-1968)., The Fire Control Series forms part of the Engineering Design Handbook Series which presents engineering information and quantitative data for the design and construction of Army equipment. In particular, the hand- books of the Fire Control Series have been prepared to aid the designers of Army fire control equipment and systems, and to serve as a reference guide for all military and civilian personnel who may be interested in the design aspects of such material. The handbooks of the Fire Control Series are based on the fundamental parameters of the fire control problem and its solution. In all problems of control over the accuracy of weapon fire, some method or system of fire control is employed that derives its intelligence from the acquisition and tracking of a target; evaluates this system-input intelligence by computation; and, finally, applies the output information to the positioning of a weapon along the line of fire. Primary emphasis is laid on the systematic approach required in the design of present-day fire control equipment and systems. This approach involves (1) thorough analysis of the particular fire control problem at hand, (2) establishment of the most suitable mathematical model, and (3)mechanization of this mathematical model.
