Satellites on orbit experience many internal and external disturbances, which make high-resolution observation on orbit difficulty. One solution is to isolate the payload from the disturbances by means of isolation platforms. This project is to develop a smart actuator-based micro-vibration isolation platform for high-resolution space applications such as mapping. The platform is required to be light-weight, less power-consumption and high-resolution. We will conduct dynamics modeling and control system design for the platform. Different controllers will be tested on this platform and the performance will be compared. The objective of this project is to provide an effective way for micro-vibration isolation for future spacecraft.
