In World War I, the Royal Navy used an electro-mechanical system of fire control in its heavy ships which was based upon a geometrical calculator called the Dreyer Fire Control Table.

Housed deep within the ship, he Dreyer table converted the range estimates and bearings to the target and spotting reports from topside positions into a continuous estimate of range and deflection data for firing the next salvo.

The visualization shown here is from a technical simulation of the shipwide system I created in 2004/2005.
