The objective of this paper is to develop an approach to nonlinear filtering based on the Cameron--Martin version of Wiener chaos expansion. This approach gives rise to a new numerical scheme for nonlinear filtering. The main feature of this algorithm is that it allows one to separate the computations involving the observations from those dealing only with the system parameters and to shift the latter off-line.
