Abstract
THe paper describes an actively controlled six-axis orthogonal hexapod mount that provides vibration isolation, suppression and steering capabilities for space observational systems. Experimental results for vibration isolation is presented. The results show that though the passive-only isolation reduces disturbance propagation significantly, the combination of active and passive isolation provides the best option. The active stage reduces the propagation over the passive-only case by additional 35 dB in the mid frequency range of 10-100Hz.
