A technique is developed for least-weight optimal design of a tubular-truss space structure, subject to constraints on its natural frequencies and its open-loop disturbance-rejection properties. The disturbance-rejection properties of the structure are measured by disturbance-to-regulated-variable grammians. It is shown how this technique can be embedded in a model-reduction scheme based on internal balancing. Examples treated include a simple dumbell model and csdl model no. 1. Author
