Abstract:

This report describes a first-year exploratory development program of study, design, fabrication, and test of advanced inertial sensing insturment technology and other navigation system technology. Activities covered include 1 research in spin-axis gas and ball bearings, sputter-etch and sputter-deposition techniques, and ball-retainer materials and processing 2 investigation of new techniques for signal processing and conversion which include hypha phase-locked-loop processing and the use of a microprocessor to perform attitude transformations and 3 analysis of the problem of radar motion compensation.
