Abstract:

Two general objectives were set forth at the beginning of the contract. The first concerned a study of the application of the parameter plane analysis technique to the analysis of rocket attitude control systems. In particular, it was desired to portray how domains of stability could be determined, how control system responses could be indicated, and how nonlinear characteristics of elements, such as rate gyroscopes and actuators which normally appear in missile hardware, might be incorporated in a stability analysis. A second objective wasto use the parameter plane technique to analyze the application of an acceleration vector attitude control system to an Army rocket system. A third objective arose as an outgrowth of the first objective. This was to determine the suitability of applying the parameter plane analysis technique to the design of a sampled-data control system. Author
