Paper Abstract

We proposed the use of model reference control for the improvement in the performance characteristics of fine tracking mirrors. We present both analog and digital implementations of model reference control on a specially designed high bandwidth steering mirror and a commercially available lower bandwidth mirror. Improvement in system response and immunity to environmental jitter are demonstrated.
