Award Amount: $149,932.00
 

Abstract:

ABSTRACT: This effort will implement fast, efficient, system-identification algorithms, based on subspace identification techniques. The algorithms will apply for both plant and disturbance identification on HEL jitter reduction and tracking systems. BENEFIT: This technology will find application with both the military and in the commercial market. Military applications will include jitter stabilization subsystems in a variety of laser weapon systems. In addition we expect civilian applications of the system ID capabilities of the hardware in areas such as mechanical engineering, biology, physiology, meteorology and economics.
