Abstract:

This report presents the results of a study on platform self- alignment performed at the Guidance and Control Directorate, US Army Missile Research, Development and Engineering Laboratory, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama. The study was initiated to explore the latest techniques in platform self- alignment and to develop new and novel approaches which would enhance the successful application of self-alignment principles to the PERSHING 2 platform alignment problem with its unique accuracy and reaction time constraints. A significant result of this study is the development of a new gyrocompassing algorithm which provides improved self-alignment performance.
