SPACE DATA CORPORATION HAS AN IN-DEPTH THEORETICAL AND APPLICATION ENGINEERING BACKGROUND IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF DIGITAL CONTROL SYSTEMS FOR VARIOUS AEROSPACE APPLICATIONS SUCH AS VEHICLE CONTROL, EXOATMOSPHERIC PAYLOADS ATTITUDE CONTROL, SPACE SHUTTLE PAYLOADS GIMBAL SYSTEMS POINTING CONTROL, AND GROUND-BASED TELEMETRY TRACKING SYSTEMS. THE COMPANY IS CURRENTLYDEVELOPING FOR NASA A LARGE PAYLOAD (3,000 LB) ALL-PURPOSE SPACE SHUTTLE GIMBAL AND DIGITAL CONTROL SYSTEM; AND A SMALL, VERY HIGHPERFORMANCE GIMBAL SYSTEM (80 HZ BANDWIDTH) FOR A FORTHCOMING SDI SPACE SHUTTLE TRACKING AND POINTING EXPERIMENT. SDC HAS ALSO DEVELOPED VARIOUS KINDS OF LAND-BASED AND SHIPBOARD TELEMETRY TRACKING SYSTEMS FOR ANTENNA DIAMETERS FROM ONE METER TO OVER TEN METERS (IE, 34 FEET DIAMETERS). ALL OF THESE SYSTEMS UTILIZE COMPANY-DEVELOPED MICROPROCESSOR CONTROLLERS AND CONTROL SOFTWARE. KEY MEMBERS OF THE COMPANY HAVE BOTH FORMAL EDUCATION AND PRACTICAL DEVELOPMENT EXPERIENCE IN ADVANCED CONTROL SYSTEMS THEORY AND MICROCOMPUTER SYSTEMS HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT.
