The newly developed dominant-data matching method has been successfully extended to design a digital pitch control system of a semiactive terminal homing missile system. As a result, the designed digital controller can be implemented on a microprocessor. Also, a direct-decoupling method for mulitvariable control system designs has been developed and modified. This newly developed simple and practical method can be readily applied by a practicing control engineer for coupled high-order multivariable control system designs. The feasibility of synthesizing a multi-port controller without using integrators has been studied. As a result, a new matrix Sturm series and block canonical form of a matrix transfer function has been developed. The practical applications of the newly developed results on multi-port network synthesis are further investigated. Other new findings of this research are reported in the appendix. Author
