    The design of a conventional autopilot requires a detailed knowledge of the structural dynamics of the missile that is not easily obtainable. The self-adaptive autopilot considered in this paper would not depend on this detailed knowledge. This system would, ideally, adjust itself to maintain optimum performance in an environment of changing inertial, aerodynamic, and structural parameters. The me... View full abstract»

    The control of a missile in free-fall in the presence of external disturbances requires that the control system be stable when various body bending modes are excited. It is an inevitable consequence of the internal and external missile environment that all body bending modes are excited. The general method of stabilizing a missile is to choose a minimum of inertial sensors such as rate and attitud... View full abstract»

    An analytic study of flywheel autopilots for attitude control of space vehicles is described, and the results of a three-axis analog computer program are presented. The objectives of this study were to determine the requirements, capabilities and limitations of flywheel autopilots as functions of desired accuracy and speed of response, disturbing moments, differential gravity restoring torques, co...

  • The incremental phase plane for nonlinear sampled data systems

    An analysis technique for nonlinear sampled data systems is developed, using the incremental phase plane. This method is analogous to the phase plane method for continuous systems. A sampled data system with saturation is analyzed to demonstrate the use of the incremental phase plane in system analysis. Path tangent curves are introduced which allow the graphical solution of systems with more gene... View full abstract»

  • On the optimum synthesis of sampled data multipole filters with random and nonrandom inputs

    This paper considers the synthesis of optimum sampled data multipole filters with n inputs and m outputs. The signal portion of each input is assumed to consist of a stationary random component and a polynomial with unknown coefficients but known maximum order. Each signal is corrupted by stationary random noise. The filter under investigation is linear, time-invariant, and has finite memory. Each... View full abstract»

    In the past decade improvements have been made in the design of dry powder magnetic clutches which now make them competitive with hydraulic devices for missile servo actuator applications. Some of the inherent advantages of magnetic clutch actuators are: (a) increased control system reliability, (b) simplified equipment requirements, (c) properties remain constant with usage, (d) environmental req...

  • A study of asynchronously excited oscillations in nonlinear control systems

    This study was initiated as an effort to explain certain oscillatory phenomena observed in an aircraft and weapon control system operated in a particular mode. The oscillations in question were of the undamped limit-cycle type and their presence could very clearly be correlated with the degree of noise corruption of the signals. It is demonstrated in this paper that certain types of nonlinear syst... View full abstract»

    The stability and accuracy of a control system consisting of two interwoven loops are affected by interaction among all transfer functions and all inputs. This is undesirable, since the design of each transfer function must be compromised to account for the interaction effects. In some cases, the two loops can be decoupled by the addition of an appropriate feedback path. This paper describes the a... View full abstract»
