Guidance and Control Mechanics Test - Attitude Control System Analytical Performance Verification.
MCDONNELL CO ST LOUIS MO
Pagination or Media Count:
Closed-loop attitude control system analytical performance verification tests were conducted for the Gemini B spacecraft and the mated Gemini B-Manned Orbiting Laboratory MOL configurations. Both manual and automatic modes were tested. The primary concern was the ability to control and display accurately attitude and rates of the Gemini B spacecraft. Tests of the inertial platform were performed on a 3-Axis Flight Motion Simulator, driven by an analog computer. The analog computer also mechanized the dynamic equations of motion for both configurations. Author
