The thesis is concerned with the analysis and compensation of a sample data contactor feedback control system. This accelerometer system, called a pulse restrained accelerometer PRA, presents velocity information in increments of velocity. The thesis presents an analysis procedure for determining the behavior of the PRA system for zero input acceleration. The analysis is extended by heurisitic methods to predict the response of the system to steps and ramps of input acceleration. A simulation of the problem on an analogue computer provides a check on the analysis and indicates areas of further study. Author
