Abstract : This report consists of study reports on the Special Mode Operation of the Flight Data System. The analysis of the geometric relationships of the inertial platform gimbal system includes a set of transformations between gimbal angles, vehicle body rates, and vehicle attitude angles to provide a basis for gimbal output error analysis. The steady state response characteristics of the outer roll gimbal, while operating under special mode conditions, is studied in the LN-4 Platform Outer Roll Gimbal Response Analysis. A replacement for the normal signal adaptor in vehicles or for missions requiring special mode operation is described in an analysis of the Mechanization of LN-4 Special Mode Controller. (Author)
