Implementation of a design for testability strategy using the Genesil silicon compiler
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989-03)
Design for Testability (DFT) is receiving major emphasis in the very large scale integration design field due to increasing circuit complexity. The utility of the silicon compiler and its value to a system designer without ...
Design of a three-axis stabilized ORION satellite using an all-thruster attitude control system
An all-thruster three-axis stabilized attitude control system has been designed for the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) satellite bus, ORION. The satellite is a cylinder, 19 inches in diameter, 35 inches in length, 250 ...
Estimating forces acting on an underwater vehicle with G.P.S. and Kalman filtering
A discrete state space model is developed which describes an autonomous underwater vehicle and incorporates the effects of currents, sea state, and wind as it travels through the sea. Heading commands are calculated to ...
Three-dimensional image generation from an aerial photograph
This thesis concerns developing a program that takes an aerial photograph, and a set of Digital Terrain Elevation Data (DTED) that is defined over the area of the photograph, and generates a synthesized view that represents ...
An autonomous circuit for measurement of photovoltaic devices parameters
In this research a novel autonomous test system is presented. The system is a self contained microprocessor based experiment, which was developed to compare and test different state-of-the-art Gallium Arsenide and Silicon ...
An experimental test of minority carrier annealing on gallium arsenide solar cells using forward-baised current
There has been recent interest in providing an on-orbit solar cell annealing capability. Minority carrier injection annealing was examined using a 0.5a/cm^2 forward-biased current density on gallium arsenide solar cells ...
Multilevel secure front end for data communications
This thesis demonstrated the feasibility of using a multilevel secure computer system to augment traditional security measures used to safeguard sensitive information in an office to office communication environment. A ...
A solid state data recorder for space-based applications using magnetic bubble memory.
Earthbound recording systems come in many sizes and use various mediums on which to record the data. The harsh environment of space, however, introduces some unique problems. This limits the number of choices not only ...
Image segmentation using the military specification 1750A microprocessor
The use of computers to process various types of sensor data Is becoming increasingly common, in both civilian and military applications. One example of this use is the enhancement of photographs to increase their clarity, ...
A digital recording system for space-based applications utilizing four-megabit magnetic bubble memories
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1985-06)
Magnetic bubble memory technology offers several desirable characteristics for applications in space as a mass data recording and storage systems. A modular combination of Intel Corp. state-of-the-art four-megabit magnetic ...
