Summary, etc.:
"Work performed as part of an investigation of noise affecting instrumentation in a tethered subsatellite was studied. The following specific topics were addressed during the reporting period a method for stabilizing the subsatellite against the rotational effects of atmospheric perturbation was developed a variety of analytic studies of tether dynamics aimed at elucidating dynamic noise processes were performed a novel mechanism for coupling longitudinal and latitudinal oscillations of the tether was discovered, and random vibration analysis for modeling the tethered subsatellite under atmospheric perturbation were studied. ."--NTRS abstract.
