The fast steering mirror is a significant element of the photoelectric precision tracking system and is mainly used for attenuating the tracking error of the main axis and rejecting the line-of-sight jitter caused by various disturbances. A control loop model is constructed and object parameters have been identified according to this model in this paper. Low sampling frequency introduce great delay into the imaging tracking system, which may restrict greatly the closed-loop bandwidth, reduce tracking precision of the system and even make the system unsteady. Various elements which limit tracking loop bandwidth are presented and analyzed. Three tracking systems with different sampling frequency are simulated and analyzed. From the simulation result the conclusion can be drawn that it is difficult to increase the closedloop bandwidth in the presence of great delay by means of the general control method. Accordingly feedback control or feed forward control may be tried to improve the error attenuation of the system. The micro-mechanical gyro can be used for measuring the angular velocity of fast steering mirror, so output of velocity gyro as velocity loop feedback may improve the system performance. Furthermore, the velocity loop feedback can enhance the rigidity and the output stability of the tracking system. Finally, the velocity feedback can increase the type of the open loop system; consequently it will improve the error attenuation of the system. The simulation result shows that the tracking precision of the system with velocity feedback is 10 times better than the system without velocity feedback.
