A theoretical investigation has been made to determine the effect of automatic stabilization on the lateral oscillatory stability of a hypothetical supersonic airplane. The investigation included an automatic pilot sensitive to a displacement in either yaw or roll and an automatic pilot sensitive to either the yawing or rolling angular velocity.
