The development of microelectronics has brought into being large capacity digital memories in a small package. In the foreseeable future even more advances can be seen in this trend. Therefore the use of digital computers in control systems will play an even larger role than today. This work involves a fourth order system to simulate the control and dynamics of a missile. Proportional navigation is used as the guidance method. Studied are the effects of applying different controls which are considered best from a computer study and the effects of applying digital filtering methods. Although these studies were applied to a specific problem, an attempt is made to keep the discussion general in order that the methods may be considered for other problems.
