Highway Profiling

Ride quality on highways and railways improved by Marshall Space Flight Center's stabilized spacecraft guidance and control systems. Instruments for profiling roadways are enhanced by addition of stable three-axis platform-type inertial reference. System can measure banks, bumps, curves, grades, elevations, speeds, and roadway undulations. Appropriate computer programs can be written to answer future questions concerning roadbed.
