Abstract:

ACOSS Fourteen is one of a series of studies for the development of a unified structural dynamics and control technology base to support future development of large space systems. The major emphasis in these studies in the past has been on generic control law development for active vibration suppression. The emphasis is now shifting towards hardware development and experimental verification of the technology. ACOSS Fourteen studies the definition, design and plan for an on-orbit, Shuttle-based Proof of Concept demonstration and stability enduring designs which extend previous designs and treat noncolocated actuator-sensor control systems, while remaining insensitive to modal truncation and inaccurate structural models.
