Abstract:

A brief description of the star pointing attitude control system developed for the Skylark rocket is given. This is followed by a review of the possible sources of error which could affect the flight performance of the unit and an analysis of the accuracies in fact achieved with it during the flight of Skylark SL1011. The Report concludes by pointing out certain limitations of the system and, where practicable, suggesting possible solutions.
