An integrated INS/GPS navigation system for small AUVs using an asynchronous Kalman filter
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1998-06-01)
A Small AUV Navigation System (SANS) is being developed at the Naval Postgraduate School. The SANS is an integrated INS/GPS navigation system composed of low-cost, small-size components. It is designed to demonstrate the ...
Design, construction and programming of a microcontroller-based testbench suitable for radiation testing of microelectronic circuits
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1997-03)
This thesis describes the design, construction, and programming of a microcontroller- based testbench suitable for radiation testing microelectronic integrated circuits. It will be used to test circuits fabricated using ...
MIMO recursive least squares control algorithm for the AN/FPN-44A Loran-C transmitter
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1993-09)
A multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) recursive least squares (RLS) algorithm is developed to shape and control the Loran-C RF pulse of the AN/FPN-44A tube type transmitter. The control algorithm is incorporated into a ...
Simulation of tripod gaits for a hexapod underwater walking machine
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1993-06)
This thesis develops the mathematical relationships necessary to implement alternating tripod gaits on the hexapod underwater walking machine, AquaRobot. Analysis of documentation and application of Denavit-Hartenberg ...
Trellis coded modulation applied to orthogonal signals.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School;, 1993-03)
A method for the design of trellis codes for coherent detection of orthogonal signals in additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channels is presented. This method utilizes the landmark works of Ungerboeck in trellis coded ...
Automatic pulse shaping with the AN/FPN-42 and AN/FPN-44A Loran-C transmitters
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1992-12)
Automatic pulse shape control is simulated for the N/FPN-42 and AN/FPN-44A tube type transmitters. A linear, time invariant (LTI) pole-zero model is developed for each transmitter at a typical operating point using the ...
The design of an adaptive attitude control system.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1992-09)
This research designed and simulated an adaptive attitude control system for the Crew Equipment/Retriever (CER) during autonomous attitude hold and large angle or slewing maneuvers. The CER is a proposed space robot that ...
A mixed excitation vocoder with fuzzy logic classifier
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1992-06)
The aim of this thesis work is to explore the use of fuzzy systems in a speech coding and classification application. A mixed excitation LPC based speech coder is developed. The excitation classifier for the speech coder ...
Investigation of an equivalent circuit for the inductive strip in finline with dielectric.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1991-06)
This thesis describes a circuit model for the inductive strip in inhomogeneous finline with the following geometry: fin and strip centered in the shield, dielectric material with er = 2.22, b/a = 4/9, 0.5 0.01 and 0.0< ...
Real-time multi-frequency modulation using differentially-encoded signal constellations
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 1990-06)
This report discusses advances in the development of a multi- frequency modulation (MFM) packet communications system on an industry standard computer. Transmitter and receiver programs are described that control vector ...
