Anticipative target tracking encompasses a number of operational cases. Automatic artillery gun defence against shells: this may be the first need in the defence systems where anticipative tracking even of a split second is operationally relevant.Tracking of ballistic targets and prediction of impact point in the re-entry phase is quite important in defence systems. The possibility to exploit some a priori information can help the task of impact point prediction. A priori information (like maps, roads, gallery terrain orography, multi-path exploitation to mitigate blind conditions for instance in urban tracking, etc.) are very helpful in assisting the target tracking and predicting ahead in time the target trajectory. This is a form of cognitive tracking also referred to as knowledge-based tracker (KBT).
