The authors consider the following optimal control problem for semilinear hyperbolic systems with smooth boundary controls \(u(s)\): \[ J(u)= \int_S \varphi(x(s, t_1), s)\,ds+ \iint_P F(x,s,t)\,ds\,dt\to \text{minimum}, \] \[ {\partial x\over\partial t}+ A(s,t) {\partial x\over\partial s}= f(x,s,t), \] \[ x(s, t_0)= p(u(s), s),\quad x^+(s_0, t)= M(t) x^-(s_0, t)+ g^{(1)}(t), \] \[ x^-(s_1, t)= N(t) x^+(s_1, t)+ g^{(2)}(t). \] For these problems, a necessary optimality condition is derived and a numerical method is given, which is based on the optimality condition. A numerical test is given.
