Abstract:

Results in three areas of MICRON system level analysis are presented. The MICRON Computer Simulation Program MCSP which directly simulates the system mechanization equations is used to investigate system performance during several proposed MESG instrument variations and during severe environments. Equations describing the propagation of instrument errors into MICRON navigation errors are derived and coded into a covariance analysis computer program for use in statistical performance analysis studies. The covariance analysis program is used to determine the propagation characteristics of those error sources which are unique to the MICRON system. Activities in support of the test program for the N57A demonstration system are described. These activities include critical review of the test Plan and Evaluation of the test data.
