    This is a tutorial presentation of various considerations involved in the synchronization problem for PCM time-division multiplex telemetry. Information rates required for establishing and maintaining sychronization are noted. The great difference between real-time synchronization and synchronization in post-time data reduction is emphasized. Several synchronization schemes are discussed. View full abstract»

    The capabilities and limitations of a specific flight path control law for range maneuvering during the atmospheric phase of re-entry from orbit, as determined by a digital computer study, are presented. Results of this study demonstrate that a relatively simple guidance and flight path control loop, utilizing a preprogrammed normalized trajectory plus vehicle velocity and range-to-go measurements...

    The command link described was developed for use with a radar tracked, surface-to-surface guided missile. However, it has features which are applicable to a variety of other uses, wherever communications must be disguised and coded to prevent undesired interference, and to insure secrecy. The command link is of the time division variety, utilizing a pseudorandom command code, which code pulses are... View full abstract»

    The magnetometer described in this paper was designed for the purpose of measuring the distant geomagnetic and interplanetary magnetic fields. The sensing element is a coil fixed in the frame of a spinning vehicle. The associated nonlinear amplifier has a dynamic range of approximately three decades and an equivalent noise threshold of 6.0 microgauss. This system has been flown in the Pioneer I, E...

    The systems for acquisition and reduction of telemetry data for 1959 Delta (Explorer VI) and 1960 Alpha (Pioneer V) are described. These include an analog and a digital system in Explorer VI and a digital system in Pioneer V. The discussion covers digitization of data in the payloads, methods of handling and recording data on the ground, reduction techniques, and the procedures used to disengage s... View full abstract»

    In a majority of timing applications, a problem exists in setting two or more clocks to agree with one another. Present techniques using WWV or other HF broadcasts allow clocks to be synchronized within 1 msec. This paper describes a method which offers an improvement in synchronization of three orders of magnitude. Microsecond synchronization is obtained by use of the Loran-C navigation system as...

    If a system of communications satellites is uncontrolled after launching, service interruptions are inevitable. The amount of interruption depends on the number of satellites, their altitude, the orbit inclinations, the distance between ground stations, the acceptable signal-to-noise ratio, and other parameters. Various relations between these quantities are presented in tables and graphs, and are... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the circuitry, the electrical specifications, the environmental specifications, and the method of calibration of a completely transistorized true root-mean-square voltage discriminator. The circuitry is broken into four separate operational circuits, each of which is discussed in relation to what it does and what its relationship to the other configurations is. The specificati...
