Abstract:

The theory of steady state and broad band random disturbance rejection for large space structures is developed and tested analytically on a complex optical strawman configuration. It is shown that active control is potentially feasible for micro-vibration stabilization of precision large structures. A number of brassboard experiments have been carried out to illustrate the theory and to address implementation and mechanization of active control systems with both analog and digital approaches.
