    The Doppler-inertial hybrid is analyzed as a multivariate system and a general performance criterion is formulated. The mathematical system model is optimized with respect to the performance criterion and synthesis of the optimum system is discussed. View full abstract»

    An experimental Video Tracking System has been developed by the Aviation Research and Development Service of the FAA for use in the control of aircraft operating in Transition-Terminal areas. This system communicates directly with a generalpuropse digital computer and is capable of generating and controlling 50 analog video trackers which can operate in either a Track-While-Scan or Rate-Aided mode...

  • A Flush-Mounted Glide-Path System

    An instrument-landing system glide-path has been developed which produces a straight-line path originating directly from the touchdown region on the runway. This system makes use of five flush-mounted runway antennas which are mounted directly in the runway, thus eliminating the ground-reflected signals which are presently used to form the path. As a result, the effects of terrain irregularities i... View full abstract»

    Random process theory is applied to a number of typical problems encountered in the error analysis of inertial guidance systems and in the design of optimum error predicting filters for such systems. The applications of random process theory include: Measurement of system error autocovariance functions. An example of the measurement of a random drift rate process, constructed by the uniformly dist... View full abstract»

  • On Gyro Drift Models and Their Evaluation

    Random gyro drift, which is the uncorrectable drift that occurs in gyros, represents the major error input of inertial navigation systems that are required to operate over long time intervals. This random gyro drift must be taken into account whenever performing an error analysis or optimization study on such a system; otherwise, the results of the analysis or study would be meaningless. Random gy... View full abstract»

  • An Application of Vector Angles to Gyroscope Analysis

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):235 - 240
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (804 KB)

    Euler's dynamic equation is derived in vector-dyadic form for a three-degree-of-freedom gyro configuration. This equation is then simplified by means of two approximations which are compatible with practical gyro design. As angular displacements of the gyro gimbals are assumed to be small, such displacements are represented by vector angles. Spring torques, and torques due to viscous damping are f...

  • Leakage Rejection in Beam-Switched CW Radars

    This paper is directed to the problem of transmitter-receiver leakage rejection in CW and FMCW radars which employ stepped-scanning antennas. An IF carrier-elimination filter has been devised and analyzed which provides leakage-rejection capabilities limited only by leakage variations during stationary beam positions. Leakage rejection is provided by coherently reducing the signal to zero IF, reje... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a radar system in which a measure of range is obtained as the phase difference between amplitude modulations on the transmitter and echo signals. Significant features of this AM radar system are simplicity and capability of accurately measuring very short ranges. For instance, an experimental unit ranges from zero to 50 feet with maximum error of six inches. View full abstract»

    This paper describes several methods of phase modulation radar in which the Doppler effect provides a carrier for range information. It is shown that these methods yield simple radar systems capable of measuring both the range and the speed of a target down to essentially zero distance. In contrast to conventional radars, only a nominal transmission bandwidth is required even under conditions wher... View full abstract»
