Paper Abstract

The introduction of passive electro-optical sensors on surface ships requires the development of a precision platform stabilization and control system which must operate in an above deck environment. This paper describes the platform control system requirements, presents performance models of the stabilization system and discusses the principal design tradeoffs. Measured performance data from a shipboard EO system is presented.
