dc.description.abstractDouble integration of the longitudinal acceleration of a sounding rocket is useful as a simple means of determining its trajectory. Reasonably accurate altitude calculations can be made by this method except when surface winds alter the launch angle of the rocket. Surface wind velocity corrections can be introduced to correct velocity and position information in the horizontal direction, but accurate wind correction data is difficult to obtain for all rockets. A special solar aspect sensor was designed to be used with a commercially available magnetic aspect sensor for rocket attitude determination. This attitude data allows the longitudinal acceleration to be broken more accurately into three vector components. A feasibility study of the aspect system was made using three Aerobee-150 rockets. A digital computer trajectory program was written to utilize aspect and acceleration data for trajectory analysis. It is evident that rocket attitude data is a useful supplement to the longitudinal acceleration data for trajectory determination. More accurate magnetic aspect data is necessary, however, to refine the longitudinal acceleration technique.
