Abstract:

The theory of stability augmentation active control of vehicle dynamics for large space structures is developed and tested analytically on a number of strawman configurations including large surveillance and HEL weapons plateforms. It is shown that active control is potentially feasible for micro-vibration stabilization of precision large structures performance of several experimental breadboards is illustrated to enhance the theory.
