Modern artilleries have the capability to hit targetswith high level of accuracy. However, a problem ariseswith the current firing procedure when neither theField Observer nor the Fire Direction Center isavailable to support the artillery crew with thenecessary information. In this situation, the detectionof environmental conditions would involve a number ofuncertainties and due to this reason, conventionalcontrol techniques will not deliver satisfying solutionssince the adjustment to the artillery’s firing line will bebased on data that is approximate rather than precise.In this paper, we propose a firing angle control systembased on the Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy model. Theadvantage of fuzzy logic is the ability to tune certainvariables easily by varying the linguistic rules or inputvariables. Experiments show that effective results canbe obtained using a fuzzy model, while demonstratingthat the model could come in handy when the firingangle has to be determined instantaneously with veryvague information about the target.
