Paper Abstract

Experimental results are presented for active vibration control of the Air Force Research Laboratory's UltraLITE Precision Deployable Optical Structure (PDOS), a ground based model of a sparse array, large aperture, deployable optical space telescope. The primary vibration suppression technique employs spatio-temporal filtering, in which a small number of sensors are used to produce modal coordinates for the structural modes to be controlled. The spatio-temporal filtering technique is well suited for the control of complex, real-world structures because it requires little model information, automatically adapts to sensor and actuator failures, is computationally efficient, and can be easily configured to account for time-varying system dynamics. While controller development for PDOS continues, the results obtained thus far indicate the need for an integrated optical/structural control system.
