24 April 1997 Experimental implementation of model-reference-control for fine-tracking mirrors
Author Affiliations +
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.
