Paper Abstract

The performance of precision stabilization systems for electro-optical sensors is often limited by the friction disturbance torques. This tutorial paper describes the classical design technique for minimizing the line-of-sight (LOS) motion due to friction coupling of the base dynamics. A specific design example with measured data is presented. The potential for improved performance by using additional state feedback techniques is discussed.
