Paper Abstract

It is inevitable that tracking high-elevation object exists blind region with horizontal gimbal, need to take some control methods to improve the system for high-elevation target tracking capability and reduce the blind region. This paper compares several common tracking control methods, including compound axis control of dual detector, compound axis control of single detector, compound axis control of single detector with modified guidance, analyzes the principle of operation, advantages and disadvantages, and validates by experiments. The experimental results showed that it is stable and reliable using guide modified compound axis control of single detector when the target position information is more accurate. On the other hand, it is able to meet the needs to track target with high speed and high acceleration using improved compound axis control of single detector when the target position information is not very accurate.
