The Inmos transputer has stimulated significant interest in parallel processing for control. It offers real-time implementation of complex algorithms at a reasonable cost but if parallel architectures are to be fully exploited it is essential that systematic mapping procedures emerge from the application specific solutions presently under consideration. The paper proposes two different mapping procedures. One relies on a fine-grained systolic array description of computation and is applied to transputer realisation of discrete Kalman filters for state feedback control of a simple missile engagement. The other uses an analogue computer flow diagram to produce a real-time simulation of a bank-to-turn missile. In each case practical results have been obtained
