A detailed investigation of the control problems involved in an active fin roll stabilization system is described. An optimum system has now been derived taking as its sole input a roll angle signal from the ships central weapons stabilization system (Mk. 19 compass). This signal is processed electronically to derive a control transfer function in terms of roll angle, roll velocity and roll acceleration. Other features e.g. forced roll, stabilize with list, speed compensation of loop gain, helm compensation and fin limiting as a function of ship's speed, are incorporated as are testing and fault finding facilities, and static and dynamic calibrating signals.
