Abstract:

To study active structure control technology as applied to Large Space Structures LSS. In particular, to develop analysis and design techniques for utilization of practicing control system engineers in their investigations of future Large Space Structures LSS. These techniques will be use qualified through application to a representative model of a LSS. This objective is in support of the overall ACOSS objective which is to develop and understand a generic, unified structural dynamics and control technology base for LSS with stringent Line-of-Sight LOS and figure performance requirements that must be maintained in the presence of onboard and natural disturbances. This effort will be restricted to theory development, experiment design, demonstration and documentation of structural dynamics and control technology for large precision spacecraft.
