Design of a navigator for a Testbed Autonomous Underwater Vehicle
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989-12)
Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) are a subject of study at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). This thesis discusses the formulation of a navigator for the Testbed AUV being constructed at NPS. The navigator being ...
DOA estimation by eigendecomposition using single vector Lanczos Algorithm.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989-06)
Subspace methods of solving spectral estimation and direction of arrival (DOA) problems involve finding the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of correlation matrices. Using the Lanczos algorithm some of the extreme eigenvalues ...
An engineering methodology for implementing and testing VLSI circuits
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989-03)
The engineering methodology for producing a fully tested VLSI chip from a design layout is presented. A 16-bit correlator, NPS CORN88, that was previously designed, was used as a vehicle to demonstrate this methodology. ...
Modeling, simulation, and analyses of attitude control for the Crew Equipment Retriever (CER) proposed for space station.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989)
The Crew. Equipment Retrieval System (CERS) is proposed for space station to provide the capability to rescue an EVA crewman or to retrieve equipment inadvertently detached from the station. This research is directed to ...
Spin stabilization of the ORION satellite using a thruster attitude control system with optimal control considerations
(Naval Postgraduate School, 1989)
The controlled system is the ORION satellite spinning about its single axis of symmetry. Hydrazine thrusters are used as the control and are modeled by ideal, constant magnitude step functions. The system is normalized and ...
Code optimization of speckle reduction algorithms for image processing of rocket motor holograms
This thesis supplements and updates previous research completed in the digital analysis of rocket motor combustion chamber holographic images. In particular this thesis deals with the software code optimization of existing ...
Parameter plane analysis of automatic control systems using an IBM compatible microcomputer
A group of lesser used analog control system design techniques, generally termed parameter plane methods, is examined through the use of an IBM compatible microcomputer program developed as part of this thesis. The ...
Automated design of a microprogrammed controller for a Finite State Machine.
A Scalable Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (SCMOS) microprogrammed controller for the Monterey Silicon Compiler (MSC) is implemented in the LISP programming language. The internal organization of MSC and the architecture ...
Design considerations for the ORION satellite: structure, propulsion and attitude control subsystems for a small, general purpose spacecraft
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1988-03)
A general purpose satellite (ORION) has been designed which will launch from the Space Shuttle using a NASA Get-Away-Special (GAS) canister. The design is based on the use of a new extended GAS canister and a low profile ...
Long haul underwater fiber optic link
This thesis presents the design test and evaluation of a fiber optic remote monitoring system. Practical aspects of loss measurement, link analysis, receiver design, and controller implementation are examined. The fundamental ...
