The Delay Discriminator, an Optimum Tracking Device, is under current study as a new space tracking system. The transient analysis of this system requires the solution to a non-linear second-order differential equation. The Delay-Lock principle is first explained and the implimentation of this principle is described. Analysis of the system is discussed and a method of digital phase-plane solution is shown. Computer Flow Diagrams and Fortran Source Programs are fully described. With out the aid of a high speed digital computer, the analysis of this system would be difficult, tedious, and inaccurate.http://www.archive.org/details/digitalanalysiso00mullLieutenant, United States Nav
