Designing and testing damage-resistant Navy ships requires measurement of absolute ship motion caused by attacks from mines, depth charges, torpedoes etc. The report gives a method of designing electronic integration systems, stabilized by feedback, which may be used to obtain absolute ship motion by integrating accelerometer outputs. Design data are given for several variations of the general integration method presented, and an example of each variation is demonstrated by obtaining displacement from acceleration by double integration.
