A multi-stage version of the statistical decision theory applied to the optimal control problem in a Markovian dynamical system with quantum-mechanical observation is developed. Quantum analogies of Stratonovich non-stationary discrete filtering and Bellman quantum dynamical programming are obtained. It is shown that optimal strategy in Gaussian case of linearly controlled system observed by means of a quantum linear communication channel and mean square criteria consists of a sequence of quantum coherent measurements, the data of which are processed by Kalman filter, and classical linear optimal decision rule.
