Masters Theses

Abstract

"This thesis shows that reaction jet thrust pulses, each of constant amplitude and time duration, in conjunction with sampled data error information can provide satisfactory position and/or attitude control for space vehicles.

Incremental phase-plane analysis of the system yields a technique for determining system response and suggests a means of compensation. Control system response for the vehicle under the influence of external forces is shown to be satisfactory by digital computer simulation"--Abstract, page ii.
