Abstract : The difficulty encountered in operating a final-value control system in a closed-loop configuration is that the feedback gains become infinite at the final time and thus are impossible to implement. This thesis examines several alternative configurations to the closed-loop system for the Titan III booster using Flight Plan I pitch steering. (Author)
