    Analysis of telemetered vibration data received from Transit-Courier launchings, using Able-Star space vehicle equipment, indicates three major sources of vibration. These are missile engine acoustic noise at liftoff, aerodynamic effects as the missile reaches Mach 1, and separation shock when the second-stage vehicle is launched. These measurements were taken at the Able-Star instrument platform;... View full abstract»

    Attention is directed to a previously unrecognized phenomenon, plasma-enhanced breakdown of ballistic missile antennas. Plasma-enhanced antenna breakdown is a general phenomenon, and has been observed during flight tests of a variety of ballistic missiles. Examples chosen from telemetry signal-strength records of recent ballistic missile flights are presented. The need for the consideration of thi... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the ATHESA (Automatic THree-dimensional Electronic Scanned Array) technique for achieving very high antenna gain for deep-space communication systems. Phase coherence over a band of frequencies is established on reception automatically and continuously for either stationary or moving targets by phase-locking the signals from antenna elements separated by many wavelengths to a ...

    This paper describes a new class of millivolt-controlled subcarrier oscillators developed especially for operation in the rugged environments of orbital programs. The oscillators cover all the standard IRIG channels. The full IRIG signal-frequency response is achieved at a modulation index equal to five. A less-than-unity-gain, long-tailed pair, silicon-transistor, dc amplifier and a greater-than-... View full abstract»

    This paper analyzes the step and impulse response of a phase-locked loop discriminator with an optimum-type RC filter. In previous papers the multiplier in a phase-locked loop is linearized in order to obtain the optimum filter design, and the response to a large step is not considered. In this paper the system is treated as a second-order nonlinear system, and phase plane analysis is used to dete... View full abstract»
