Quantum computing, presumably.

With the right software, parallel/super computing.

The only software that benefits missiles / torpedoes is the Launch Solution package, the missile salvo itself is used for gunner skill check not the gunners.

Self guided missiles shouldn't need any of that. They are essentially fire and forget. Though they should be fed the target information and a lock prior to launch.

There's always midcourse correction.

And the Honorverse's onboard fire direction missile that travels with the salvo.
