Abstract:

The implementation of procedures used to calculate the attitude of a rocket from its transmitted gyroscopic roll, pitch, and yaw signals is discussed. The differences and the angular conversions of the output from various inertial attitude systems are presented. Also, a synopsis of the mathematical analysis used to compute attitude is presented. In addition, analyses and data reduction techniques are developed to determine the attitude of the Ute-Tomahawk rocket A09.209-1, fired 16 April 1973 at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico.
