This web site provides a good entry point on Kalman filtering. It has a listing of books, software and more. The applications are biased towards navigation, but the applications to economic time series are also covered.

For an older introduction, specifically to the use of Kalman filters for stock price prediction, see this thesis on Kalman filtering approach to market price forecasting.
