    The design of correlation regions for track-while-scan systems is examined, assuming the requirement to maintain a constant probability of successful correlation. Starting with the assumption of independent and Gaussian-distributed range and azimuth errors in the sensor and assuming a constant-coefficient isotropic ¿-ß tracking filter, it is shown how the correlation region design must include s...

    The development of a solar pressure control system for three-axis attitude control of Earth-oriented spacecraft is presented. A controller configuration consisting of two rotatable mirrorlike surfaces, representing the minimum hardware implementation, is considered. Optimal control theory is applied to synthesize a feedback control law directly governing the differential rotation of the control su... View full abstract»

    A comprehensive theory of interferometry from a system viewpoint with particular emphasis on the ambiguity resolution problem is developed. The derived error equations include contributions from all system uncertainties, i.e., phase measurement, frequency, and element phase center position errors in three dimensions. The direction-of-arrival errors are inversely proportional to the interferometer ... View full abstract»

    A closed-form steady-state solution is presented for a three-state tracking filter with continuous position measurements and exponentially correlated target acceleration. Some other related closed-form solutions are discussed, and some comparative performance data is presented for the discrete measurement case. View full abstract»

    The effects that various code imperfections have on the peak of the mainlobe and on the time sidelobes of the compressed coded signal are described. The imperfections considered are finite pulse rise time, timing errors, code integration mismatch, and Doppler shift of the coded signal. View full abstract»

  • High Voltage/High Power for Airborne Applications

    Publication Year: 1981, Page(s):795 - 801
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2380 KB)

    The Air Force has requirements for large amounts of electrical power at high voltage (up to hundreds of kilovolts) for certain airborne applications. Because of the severe weight and volume constraints, these systems cannot be realized using conventional technology. The Air Force, therefore, has been heavily involved in the development of lightweight power generation and conditioning equipment. Pr... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (37)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1624 KB)

    A new current injected equivalent circuit approach (CIECA) to modeling switching dc-dc converter power stages is developed, which starts with the current injected approach and results in either a set of equations which completely describe input and out-put properties or an equivalent linear circuit model valid at small signal, low frequency levels. This approach to modeling switching dc-dc convert... View full abstract»

    A comparison of the false alarm rates and false alarm numbers for discrete and continuous time sampling is given for different noise spectrums (rectangular, Hamming, Gaussian, and cosine noise voltage spectrums) and for different sampling rates for the case of discrete time sampling. Also given is the increase in the false alarm rate when going from discrete to continuous time sampling when the de... View full abstract»

    An operationally simple method for triangulation in systems with strong biases is presented. The method requires three bearing measurements and two turns by the aircraft. Analysis of the method shows that accurate triangulation can be performed without knowing the bias function. The method has been tested by numerical simulation and in actual flights, and the test results are reported. An approxim... View full abstract»
