A method of increasing the kinematic boundary of air-to-air missiles using an optimal control approach
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2000-09-01)
Current missile guidance laws are generally based on one of several forms of proportional navigation (PN). While PN laws are robust, analytically tractable, and computationally simple, they are only optimal in a narrow ...
Coherent/noncoherent detection of coherent optical heterodyne DPSK-CDMA and MFSK-CDMA signals
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1991-12)
The system performance of a coherent optical heterodyne communication system is analyzed for MFSK-CDMA and DPSK-CDMA signaling. The analysis determines the effect that receiver thermal noise, photodetector shot noise, ...
Real time adaptive control of an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV)
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989-09)
In this research the problem of designing a controller for the dive maneuver of an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) is addressed. The highly nonlinear nature of the vehicle dynamics and the requirement for the fast ...
Automatic control of ship deceleration
(Monterey, California : Naval Postgraduate School, 1978-03)
Various methods have been introduced for dynamic braking of ships. Depending on the prime mover and transmission system, dynamic braking is accomplished by electric power dissipation (in electric driven ships) or clutches ...
Multidimensional analysis of the electroencephalogram using digital signal processing techniques
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-12)
The first series of results of a major research project for the analysis of the electroencephalogram (EEG) are reported. The requirements of a system capable of real time, multidimensional analysis of the EEG are described. ...
